What to take on Safari
Personal Items
These include toiletries (don't forget your toothbrush!) and importantly,
sunscreen. Insect repellent can be useful if you attract bugs and for
Northern Botswana malaria prophylaxis - seek medical advice from
your doctor for this.

As David Livingstone may have said, "No
hat, no safari!"
So bring along a sun hat and sunglasses.

Clothing needs to be lightweight and subdued in colour - pastels
are best.

Winter months June - August can be very chilly at night and early
morning, so wear layers of clothing to peel off as the day warms up. If you
don't have a warm fleece, have a look at A.I. Gear and pre-order a suitable
Summer months December - March are our rainy season. The days
are warm and the rain is usually a welcome relief, but to not be
uncomfortable, bring along a rain jacket. You get wet inside most
safari vehicles when it rains, so be prepared!

Equipment to bring along should include camera (and extra
batteries), binoculars and strong comfortable footwear. We recommend
closed shoes. A headtorch (flashlight) is also very useful around camp.
