DRESSING FOR SAFARI

WHAT CLOTHING TO PACK FOR SAFARI IN SOUTHERN AFRICA

We would love to say go all out in preparation for your holiday to Africa and kit yourself out like Indiana Jones. Unfortunately, if you read our Top Game Drive Tips you’ll know that head-to-toe khaki is not really necessary.

When it comes to dressing for safari, layering is key, as the early mornings and evenings can get quite cold. We recommend packing clothes that are practical, comfortable and neutral. We’ve compiled a packing list to make sure you don’t forget anything for your safari adventure. 

Here are our safari ‘Must-Packs’ and a few extras that won’t go amiss:

Must-Packs:

  •   cool t-shirts
  •   long-sleeve shirts
  •   a fleece or warm jacket
  •   khaki trousers
  •   shorts
  •   a hat or cap
  •   a cotton scarf or bandana
  •   walking shoes
  •   sandals or flip flops
  •   socks

A Few Extras:

  •   a slightly smarter outfit for dinner at smarter hotels / lodges
  •   a compact raincoat
  •   a swimsuit (most lodges have swimming pools)
  •   a scarf and gloves (for the winter months – June to August)
