Clothing and footwear.
On request we can take you to an outfitter for all your bush clothing requirements when you arrive.
  • Casual, comfortable clothes are the key. Dress down rather than up here.
  • During the day it is hot, so our advice is to pack lightweight loose-fitting clothes in natural fabrics such as linen, bamboo and cotton that will keep you cool and are easier to wash and dry.
  • We suggest keeping to light, neutral colors; think khaki, green and brown. Not white, as it will get dirty and dusty very quickly.
  • But it is very important to avoid camouflage or military clothing or prints, as this is illegal.
  • Avoid blue or black clothing too - the tsetse flies are drawn to these colors, and their bite can give you African Sleeping Sickness.
  • Long pants and long-sleeved tops will cover you from the harsh sun and protect against mosquitoes at night.
  • A wide brimmed sunhat and lots of sunscreen and sunblock are essential, as is insect/mosquito repellent.
  • When on safari, the idea is to relax and enjoy your time under the African sky, and listen to the calls of the wild all around you! Dinner dress is therefore casual and comfortable.
  • If you plan to do much walking, either on safari or with a backpack, then lightweight boots are fine. The bush is not always smooth and even, so anything that minimises the chance of a twisted ankle is a good idea.
  • TIPS FOR WOMEN
  • Leave your valuables and jewelry at home, you really won't need them.
  • A skirt or loose-fitting pants are good in the heat and will protect you from the sun.
  • A pashmina or sarong is a versatile item that you can use for sun protection or to 'glam' up the simplest of outfits if you feel like a change.
CLOTHING TIPS FOR MEN
  • There are no specific things to bring to your attention, check out our packing list for our suggested capsule wardrobe.
  • For great versatile travel jackets with multiple pockets PACK FOR THE WEATHER
  • This is a semi-desert climate - so it's hot during the day and cold at night.
  • Whenever you travel you will need warm clothes for the evenings - add in a fleece, pashmina or sweater. light wool is a good choice to wear against your skin as it naturally helps to regulate your body temperature. It keeps you warm in the cold, keeps away moisture when it's hot, and doesn't retain odours - even after prolonged wear.
