Below please find a list of items that we like to have when we travel and that serves as a useful guideline.
As a rule, bright colors should be avoided for walking safaris but in most cases comfort is king! It can get cool at night, especially at altitude so bear this in mind.
Laundry is available 24 hrs a day at no extra cost, therefore, it is not necessary to pack as much as one thinks. Dirty clothing will be collected and returned within the same day however for cultural reasons, women's underwear will not be washed. There is detergent provided in all rooms for hand washing.
The following list has been tailored to your safari:
Clothing and accessories
T-Shirts and long sleeved cotton shirts
Jersey/ fleece for early morning game drives
Underwear (sports bras are good for for long bumpy game drives)
Pashminas for the girls
Walking shoes & trainers
Suntan lotion (SPF 30+ is recommended)
Camera (worth investing in an SLR if you are serious about photos. Remember batteries and memory cards)
Binoculars (min 10x power magnification recommended. Nikon would be a good, affordable starter point, for more expensive options, view Leica or Swarovski)
Reading material (see recommended reading)
Basic medical kit (inc. Malaria tablets, rehydration salts, painkillers, antihistamines, Compeed, Blistex)
Mosquito Repellant (DEET 20% min.)
Passport, Visa, Tickets, Money etc.
All medications as prescribed by your physician
