A whole host of experiences await you on your safari, and two things can help make it even better: a camera and a pair of binoculars.
If you want to bring pictures of your holiday home with you, you should definitely bring your camera. Remember to bring a camera that takes pictures of a quality commensurate with the experience.
Remember a good pair of binoculars to allow you to see the animals that are some distance away from the car.
A good pair of binoculars is guaranteed to make the experience even bigger.
There is no specific safari dress code. And you don’t necessarily have to look like a guide from a National Geographic nature programme.
However, the right clothing (and equipment) can make the all the difference when you are on safari.
Below is list of items that are good to have with you on your safari.
You will find specific packing lists for several of the countries concerned under practical information. Our destinations are different, so our packing list recommendations may vary. This is especially true if, for example, you will be climbing Kilimanjaro or going gorilla tracking in Uganda.
Be sure to have the most essential items in your hand luggage. If the worst happens and your luggage is delayed, it is important to have the essentials.
*Please note that liquids in your hand luggage must be in containers of max. 100 ml. You may not carry more than can be in a bag of a volume of 1 litre.
Technical devices, etc.
Africasafari.co.uk uses several airlines to fly our guests to our destinations. So, please be aware of the rules of the airline(s) you are travelling with regarding the weight of checked baggage and hand luggage. In many places, it is possible (and cheap) to have your clothes laundered, so travel light!
If you are travelling as a couple or a group, we recommend packing in such a way that you can manage if one suitcase is delayed. Suitcases do sometimes get delayed, and it is nice to have a fresh set of clothes, etc. in your travel companion’s suitcase if this happens.
