What To Bring On Safari

Below is our recommended list of essentials for your safari.

What To Bring On Safari

The amount of luggage on safari vehicles, boats and light aircraft is limited, it is our suggestion that when travelling on safari that you bring a soft sturdy travel bag for all your luggage, limiting the weight to 20 kg as this is the restricted weight on small aircraft. Pack only the essentials for your safari.

Muted clothing is preferable on safari, please avoid wearing white, dress is casual.
