What to bring on one of our Safaris

  • Clothing: Pack lightweight, breathable clothing made from natural fibers like cotton or linen. Opt for long-sleeved shirts and long pants to protect yourself from the sun, insects, and potential thorny bushes. Neutral-colored clothing is recommended to blend in with the surroundings and avoid attracting insects.
  • Layering: Bring a light jacket or sweater for cooler mornings and evenings, as temperatures can drop. Layering allows you to adjust to changing weather conditions throughout the day.
  • Hat and sunglasses: Protect yourself from the strong sun with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses that provide UV protection.
  • Footwear: Comfortable, sturdy closed-toe shoes or hiking boots are essential for walking safaris or any activities that involve walking in the bush. Don't forget to pack a pair of comfortable socks as well.
  • Swimwear: If your safari includes a visit to a lodge or camp with a swimming pool, bring swimwear for relaxation and cooling off.
  • Rain gear: A lightweight, waterproof jacket or poncho is recommended, especially if you're traveling during the rainy season.
  • Insect repellent: Tanzania is home to various insects, including mosquitoes. Carry an effective insect repellent containing DEET to protect yourself from mosquitoes and Tsetse flies.
  • Sunscreen and lip balm: Use a high SPF sunscreen to shield your skin from the intense African sun. Lip balm with SPF will also protect your lips.
  • Binoculars: Enhance your wildlife viewing experience by bringing a good pair of binoculars to observe animals in detail from a distance.
  • Camera and memory cards: Capture the incredible wildlife and stunning landscapes with a good camera and extra memory cards.
  • Personal medications: Pack any necessary prescription medications, along with a basic first aid kit that includes essentials like pain relievers, band-aids, antiseptic cream, and any other personal medical supplies you may require.

  • Backpack or day bag: A small backpack or day bag is handy for carrying essentials during game drives or walks.
