Africa is now a hot spot for travel adventure seekers, and there are many things to bting with you if you are traveling to Africa. Depending on what safari you choose to take here are recommendations of items that you should bring, feel free to research and enquire if needed.

 

1. Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime. Neutral tones like beige, khaki, stone and light brown don't show the dirt and dust to which you'll be exposed.

 

2. A pair of good walking boots, if planning any walking safaris.

 

3. A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun - this should have string/straps, if standing in the van or jeep - it could be blown off. 

 

4. Plenty of high factor sun protection lotion/cream (High SPF). 

 

5. A good pair of binoculars.

 

6. Long trousers and long- or short-sleeved shirts for the evening, for men, as protection from mosquitoes; similarly for the ladies, maxi dresses are popular, plus a pashmina, if chilly.

8. Plenty of film or flash card memory for your camera and a battery charger.
