The Lion King.
As a grown 90s kid, you’re on a mission to make Walt Disney’s classic a reality and are off on safari.
For the most genuine experience, we hope you’re heading to the Serengeti in Tanzania!
What to pack? As a veteran safari guide and 3-time safari-ist, we’ve narrowed the essentials to 7 basics that will aid your survival in the bush.
1. Water Bottle
Out in the bush water comes out of tanks or big bottles. Bring a smaller bottle you can refill on the daily.
In the middle of nowhere it is so dark! Take a torch to light up those trips between the dining hall and tent.
People rock the Indiana Jones look for a reason – tse tse flies are attracted to colour. Hence, the neutrals and khakis.
You could try to remember all those epic moments, but a camera would help!
5. Mosquito Repellant
We say no to malarone, for reasons we won’t delve into here. Mosquito repellant does the trick.
The Serengeti is a plain. No trees. So it is bright.
7. An open mind
The bush, while it tries, won’t always come with the comforts of home. You may come across flat tyres or a shortage of bread in the morning etc. Have a cry and let it ruin your experience or have a little patience and grow in the moment!
