THE ULTIMATE PACKING BASICS FOR SAFARI

March 28, 2017

 

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.

 

2. Torch

In the middle of nowhere it is so dark! Take a torch to light up those trips between the dining hall and tent.

 

3. Khakis

People rock the Indiana Jones look for a reason – tse tse flies are attracted to colour. Hence, the neutrals and khakis.

 

4. Camera

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.

 

6. Sunglasses

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!
