    What to bring with?

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling.

    If you are doing a night hike, bring a backpack and a water bottle.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Some ideas:

    Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing. If you're going on safari, pack comfortable walking shoes and khaki, brown or beige casual clothes.

    Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and insect bites.

    Take a warm jacket for game drives; and, if you're going in summer, make sure it's water-proof.

    A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.
    Swimming costume and two towels – one for swimming and one for bathing.

    Long socks if you are going hiking (extra protection against snakes if you come across one).

    Sunglasses.

    Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take your recommended Malaria tablets if in a malaria zone, sun screen (at LEAST Factor 35 I would say), headache tablets (from being in the car during the sun all day, may bring on a headache), and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, Tabard for the mossies (mosquitos), cotton wool, germolene etc.

    Photo Equipment: Your camera, with charger, and an appropriate plug extension/adaptor.

    Bring along the best lens you can - a zoom lens will be needed as the animals are often in the distance and may only look like tiny specks in your photos when they are developed.

    Miscellaneous: Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars. Take a torch and some bog roll if you are doing outdoorsy things (just in case!).
