What to Pack

Packing For Your Your Safari

Safari Attire Guidelines:
Wear beige, khaki, brown and olive for safaris and game walks. Bring a sweater and layers of clothes. It may be chilly on the evening game drives and hot during the day. During the day a tee shirt and shorts are fine.

At night you need to have long sleeved shirts and long pants for protection from mosquitoes and for warmth.
