What to Pack
  • Comfortable neutral clothing, avoiding white and bright colors. Expect hot days, cooler mornings and evenings. A mixture of summer and autumn clothing is ideal, and a hat and jacket will keep you warm on night game drives. Wind and possible rain might move through the open vehicles and can make life a little chilly at times!

  • Important: don't forget to bring any prescription medication along with a broad-spectrum antibiotic, medication for nausea and stomach issues, and antihistamine cream for insect bites and scratches. 

  • Please provide details of any allergies and specific dietary requirements or preferences (e.g. vegetarian) at time of booking.

  • Current converter, to make sure you can use your US electronics in South Africa. Below are some options.
