What to pack when on Safari

Singita Boulders Lodge

Packing for a safari is not difficult, however always conscious of weight limits imposed by flights and transfers. You might be able to fly into the country with 30 kg of luggage but your small plane transfer might only allow you 15-20 kg. Saying that there are some essentials you must take with you.

1: Light-neutral clothing. No bright colours like bright red, purple, etc. Try to blend into your surroundings, don’t stick out.

2: Bring clothing you can layer in case it’s very cold during the early morning departure, and need to remove the layer as it gets hot. Similarly, it sometimes can get very cool in the evenings once the sun has set.

3: Sunscreen, lip balm, and hand cream. It can get very hot while on safari, but some areas get very cold early in the morning. most lodges do have these items for sale in their Curio shops, but it is better to take your own

4: Bring along a lightweight waterproof rain jacket, especially if you are going to an area during the rainy season. Rain jackets are provided on game drives, but it is always better to have your own rain jacket for emergencies.

5: Bring along comfortable closed walking shoes. Most safari lodges offer bush walks so you will want to wear shoes that you can walk in soft sand and over rougher terrain.

6: Binoculars and cameras are a must. Don’t forget to bring along your battery charger and extra batteries if you are keen on taking lots of photos. An extra memory card is always useful.

7: A small personal medical kit is always useful. Bring along medication for small cuts and burns.

8: Don’t forget your documents, including Medical Insurance, Medical Prescriptions, Passports, and Credit Cards (ensure the Cards are authorized to use in the country you are visiting)

Featuring unfiltered space and time, Singita’s award-winning lodges offer remote locations, complete privacy, and intuitive service at every turn. Each unique setting allows guests to truly connect with nature. You can experience Africa’s most pristine wildlife and wilderness up close.
