Phone, laptop and spectacles on travel bag

Your items of clothing will depend on the duration of your stay, the places you will visit and the month of your visit. To be comfortable during your safari, it is best to pack loose fitting comfortable cotton clothing such as shorts, pants and light dresses for the ladies. You also need comfortable walking shoes which can include a pair of hiking boots for those who will explore the savannah on the foot.

Sandals will serve you well during the day or at the beach resort. You will however be expected to have appropriate semi-formal clothing and footwear for the dinners at your favourite resort. Please pack swimwear as you will be expected to properly cover up – nudity and going topless is not permitted.
