Since we want your safari experience to be perfect and comfortable, we recommend a few items that we believe you should remember to bring along:
From June to September be sure to pack a few warmer items for the cooler mornings and evenings. Days are warm, but a jacket/fleece might be needed for the early morning and night time safaris.
From October to December temperatures rise and cool, light clothing is once again recommended.
Try to keep colours neutral for the safaris. Dark colours such as navy blue and black tend to attract the tsetse flies and other bugs.
Comfortable walking shoes, trainers or boots are recommended footwear, as well as sandals to wear at meals and within the lodge area.
Shorts or skirts and short-sleeve shirts for the warm midday periods.
Dinners are smart/casual. Long trousers for gentlemen.
Sun block, sun hat, sunglasses and lip balm.
Mosquito / insect repellant.
Malaria prophylaxis (see our note on Health matters.)
Extra pair of correction glasses (if you wear them).
Contact lens solution and an extra set of contact lenses (if required).
Cameras, binoculars and your favourite film.
Spare memory card if you use a digital camera.
Video camera and a spare battery. (Batteries can be recharged in your suite; electricity voltage is 220V. Power converters are available on request).
Each room is equipped with bathrobes, hair dryer and basic amenities.
We hope that this little checklist will help with your packing. As this is a time for you to get away and enjoy peace and tranquility, formal attire is not required. Wishing you a fantastic bush and wildlife safari with us!
