WHAT TO WEAR AND PACK

Comfort is the order of the day, though you may wish to dress more elegantly for dinner i.e. sport shirts and slacks for men, dresses or blouses and pants for women. For game drives and bush walks, wearing neutral-coloured, natural fibre clothing is recommended, and we suggest packing the following items to ensure you are all set for your safari experience:

  • Sturdy walking shoes
  • Warm pullover and windproof jacket (evenings and the winter months can be chilly)
  • Sun hat, sunglasses, and high-SPF sunscreen and lip balm
  • Insect repellent (provided by the lodge, though you may wish to bring along your preferred brand)
  • Camera, video camera, spare memory cards, and charging equipment
  • Binoculars
  • Waterproof bag for personal items
