Packing Guide & Nitty Gritty

When travelling on safari, luggage must be compact, light and easy to pack. Each guest is strictly limited to 20kg of luggage in a soft carrier bag including camera equipment.

We suggest you bring the following:

  • Camera with spare batteries & memory cards
  • South African plug adaptor for charging video/camera batteries – large round 3 prong type
  • Each seat has a USB charger for charging video/camera batteries
  • Good quality pair of binoculars (8×30 or better)
  • Natural toned, lightweight clothing
  • Light weight long-sleeved tops and long trousers to prevent insect and mosquito bites
  • Comfortable shoes and sandals or flip-flops
  • Light, compact raincoat is a good idea for sporadic summer thunderstorms (Nov – Apr)
  • Fleece or sweater and a warm jacket for colder winter nights (May – Aug)
  • Beanies, scarf and gloves for the cold early morning game drives in winter – it can reach 0˚C
  • Sun block, lip balm, sunglasses, hat, swimsuit, insect repellent and malaria prophylaxis
  • Toiletries and any medications
  • Prepare for 4 seasons in one day no matter which month you travel

The Nitty Gritty
