Safari Helpful Tips
There are a whole host of things to consider before you set off exploring Africa, the world’s most magical continent. Suggestions include what to pack and how to make the most of your time. We hope these will help you in some way when planning your next safari.
What’s a Safari without taking a couple of pictures to share with your friends, family or to reminisce over long after your trip? These days most phones have pretty decent cameras so this would work too.
Pair of Binoculars
Often the animals are far away and if they aren’t a Big Five animal, your guide most likely won’t be able to go off-roading to get closer so the binoculars will definitely come in handy. Also surprisingly there are some amazing birds that you will see on safari and you are going to want some binoculars to get a closer view of them.
You need shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime. Neutral tones like beige, khaki, stone and brown don’t show the dirt and dust that you will be exposed to while on Safari.
Wide Brimmed Hat
This is to shade you from the sun – this should have straps because when standing in the van or jeep it could be blown off.
Often your safari can include bush walks where you will walk with your ranger and tracker by foot looking for animals and learning about the smaller things on Safari like the plants and insects, boots are a must for this. You never know what you might find on Safari and I doubt you would want to find a snake on your bush walk wearing just flip flops or sneakers.
