Clothing and Accessories:

Light, cotton clothing in light tones:
Many first-time visitors arrive in South Africa and stick out because they look like a safari cliché.  Choose neutral tones and light fabrics, preferably cotton. These fabrics work best in a hot climate.  Pack about 3 t-shirts and 3 pairs of shorts.  Do not pack white shirts, they show the dirt up easily and make you highly visible to the animals.  Other colors to avoid are red which attracts animals, and if you are going into an area where Tsetse flies are present then you should also avoid the colors blue and black.

For the Ladies:
You can pack one smarter set of clothing for if you are staying at a private lodge, but for the most part informal.  Much more important however is to pack a good support bra, as game drives can sometimes be a little rough.

Long Sleeved Shirt and Trousers:
Pack a couple of long-sleeved shirts and a pair of long trousers. The evenings can be chilly, and they are also good for keeping mosquitoes and other insects at bay.

A Lightweight Waterproof Jacket:
The temperatures can vary greatly.  In winter you can be very cold on a morning game drive, but perfectly comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt at midday. The secret is to wear several layers that you can take off or add to as needed.

A Good Pair of Trainers or Hiking Shoes:
A good durable pair of trainers is all that is needed.  You might also like to pack a pair of sandals for around the lodge or pool.

A Wide Brimmed Hat:
Many first-time visitors to Africa underestimate the strength of the Sun even in the late afternoons.  Choose a hat that has a wide brim to shade your eyes and the back of your neck (this is an area most people forget, and where they get sun burnt.

Sunscreen:
Choose a sunscreen with the highest SPF that you can find or sun protection factor of between 30 and 50.  Do not underestimate the power of the African sunshine - the last thing you want on holiday is a bas sunburn or sunstroke.

Sunglasses:
It is a good idea to pack a pair of sunglasses as the glare from the sun during the middle of the day can hurt your eyes and give you a headache, especially if you are not used to it.

A camera, charger and spare memory cards and Binoculars:
You will want to take lots of photographs so make sure you take plenty of memory cards for your camera.  Don’t forget to pack the charger. Binoculars for seeing animals in a distance or up in a tree.

A light- weight flashlight:
Packing a small flashlight is always a good idea.  Sometimes you have to walk in the dark and being able to see where you are going in the bush is always a good thing!

A good book:
Consider packing a book that you will enjoy reading.  There will be some leisure time during the middle of the day, or while waiting for a flight when you will be grateful to have a book to read.
