Smart Giraffe

Pack for Your Safari

1. Passport, itinerary, travel insurance docs and eTickets

2. Prescription meds

3. Prescription glasses (sunglasses, hat, sunblock et al)

4. Camera, video and binoculars

5. Clothes and toiletries
  • T-shirt, shirt or blouse – long sleeves and collars help to protect from the sun and mosquitoes
  • Fleece or warm jacket
  • A pair of safari trousers – those that zip off at the knees are very handy, too
  • Comfortable walking shoes (or boots) and socks
  • Hat
  • Bandanna or cotton scarf and a sarong (kanga, pareo, kikoi)
  • Maybe a pair of open sports sandals for general daytime use in warmer months
  • Swimsuit –  a number of lodges and camps have swimming pools
  • An elegantly casual outfit for dinner at the smarter hotels
  • A light, compact raincoat if it is likely you will encounter rain (gorilla and chimp trekking)
  • And, of course, your undergarments
6. Do not forget to see the weather
