Safari Packing Guide

When travelling on a mobile safari, luggage must be compact, light and easy to pack into the trailer. Each guest is strictly limited to 20kg of luggage in a soft carrier bag and an additional small day bag plus limited camera equipment.

We suggest you bring the following:

  • Good quality flashlight and spare batteries/bulbs
  • Camera with spare batteries, film or 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

  • Natural toned, lightweight clothing

  • 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
