WHAT TO PACK

Year Round:

  • Layers – the best way to dress little ones on safari. This is due to fluctuating temperatures. We recommend cotton.
    Long sleeves and trousers will protect them from both sun and insects. Colours should be neutral (beige, khaki, tan…).
  • Sunblock, insect repellent and lip salve.
  • Fleece/warm sweater – even in summer.
  • Warm pyjamas.
  • Hat – broad brimmed for protection against the sun.
  • Shoes – good, sturdy closed shoes or boots and socks for walking.
  • Gumboots are great in the wet season!
  • Flip flops/thongs for use around camp and in outdoor showers.
  • Torch or head torch. We recommend Petzl.
  • A kikoi or light sarong has a multitude of uses.
  • A few books & small toys.
  • Swimming togs for Jack’s Camp and Planet Baobab.
Summer (Wet Season):
  • Light, compact jacket (windcheater) for the rainy season.
Winter (Dry Season):
  • It gets very cold in the evenings and early mornings, and quite hot during the day – so layers are essential.
  • Warm leggings – good to wear under trousers on the quads.
  • Hat – woollen beanie for warmth.
  • Gloves or mittens – good for cool winter evenings, quad biking and sun protection.
  • Scarf.
