How to Pack for a Safari?

Part of the & African Safari Collection

Packing for a safari will be determined by your personal travel preferences and preferred safari style. Consider this basic checklist:

Clothing: Choose lightweight, breathable fabrics in neutral colors. Wear long sleeves and pants for protection against the sun and insects.

Footwear: Comfortable, durable walking shoes or boots; sandals for evenings at the lodge.

Layering: Bring items that can be layered for early morning and evening temperature drops.

Hat and Sunglasses: Broad-brimmed hat for sun protection; high-quality sunglasses.

Binoculars and Camera: Essential for wildlife viewing experience and capturing memorable moments.

Sun Protection: High-SPF sunscreen, lip balm with SPF, and after-sun lotion.

Insect Repellent: try natural options to protect against mosquitoes.

Personal Medications: Plus a basic first-aid kit, including rehydration salts and antidiarrheal medication.

Reusable Water Bottle: To stay hydrated and reduce plastic use.

Daypack: This is for carrying essentials during game drives and walking safaris.

Power Adapters: Check the electrical outlet type for your destinations and bring suitable adapters.

Travel Documents: Passports, visas, travel insurance, vaccination certificates, and itinerary details.
