Checklist of Safari Tour

Checklist of Safari Tour

Gearing up for a long safari tour? Well, it may not go as smooth as you may have thought if you do not pack all the essential stuff needed for the tour. Don’t get bogged down by this, it’s not all that difficult either! We are going to discuss about the things that you should take along with you at all costs while going on a safari tour. This should help you a great deal.

To start with-

  • A wide brimmed hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Sun block with an SPF of more than 30 & an equally good lip balm
  • A bug repellent/ mosquito repellent cream
  • Binoculars
  • Camera
  • Extra batteries for all the electronic equipment you are going to take along
  • Flashlight
  • Tissues/ face wipes
  • First aid kit
  • Personal Toiletries
  • Battery Chargers of phone/camera

Clothing suggestions for a Safari Tour

  • Carry shirts/blouses with full sleeves (no matter what the climatic conditions are going to be like)
  • Take colors that merge with the natural environment like- beige, green, khaki and other neutral colors.
  • Prefer wearing light cotton clothes
  • T-shirts and shorts
  • A windcheater is also a must
  • Safari trousers/ jeans
  • Hiking or walking shoes you are most comfortable in
  • You may want to keep a raincoat too. Never be sure of the weather when you are traveling to a different place.
  • A swimsuit should also be a part of your luggage. You may enjoy swimming in the natural streams or rivers.
  • A pair of sandals

You should also check with the hotels or resorts you are going to stay with. These places sometimes have a dress code for dinners. Surely if that is the case, you would not want to end up in shorts and a tee shirt and embarrass yourself.

Try to keep the photographs of the luggage you are carrying or at least of some of the essentials. It will come handy if you happen to lose anything while traveling.

People traveling to places like East Africa and Zambia need to keep a “Yellow Fever Inoculation Certificate” with them. The authorities will check the certificate before they let you inside their respective countries.

Summon up

Though we have discussed a huge list above, but we also need to keep in mind that we cannot afford to have a huge luggage while on the journey. Per person one small hand bag and one soft-sided bag should be more than enough. No matter where you are traveling to, your luggage should never go beyond 20 kg. This is actually a standard limit that most of the airlines follow these days.
