    How should one dress?

    by Jenniflower Written Mar 24, 2009

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

    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.

    A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.

    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: Sun screen (Factor 35), 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 a SOUTH AFRICAN plug extension.

    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

    This is so that you don’t get lost, plus can appreciate all that’s around you that much more.

    It is not just a place to sight-see, but a place to learn from too.

    South African Plug

    South African Plug

    Miscellaneous: South Africa has a very unique plug system as you can see on the picture. Adapters are available in many shops including some supermarkets. My recommendation is that you by your adapters when you are in the country.
