Guide to Packing for an East Africa Safari

You’ve booked your flight and are ready to go on your East Africa Safari. All that’s left to do is sort out your packing list and you’ll be ready to go! There are a few things that you should keep in mind, however, when packing for this safari since it will be quite different from the other holidays that you may have taken in the past. For example, if you going to be taking a charter flight, you’ll only be able to take along one soft-sided bag with a weight restriction of 15 kg and 1 carry-on luggage bag. Putting Together a Packing List Here are some of the most important items that you’ll need to include on your list to make the most of your safari adventures: Clothing Your clothing should include 3 to 4 T-shirts, 2 shirts with long sleeves, 2 to 3 pairs of shorts, 1 lightweight fleece pullover or jacket, 2 pairs of light pants, swimwear, a bandanna or scarf, underwear, cotton socks and a hat with a wide brim that ties under the chin. Avoid clothes that are black or dark blue since they attract tsetse flies and instead choose clothes with neutral tones like brown and khaki. The long-sleeve shirts will also help prevent insect bites and will offer protection from the sun in the hot afternoons. Shoes Bring along a pair of your most comfortable walking shoes for your safari trip. You should also include a pair of the flip-flops or lightweight sandals to wear around the lodging. Miscellaneous and Personal Items Bring along your passport and a copy of it and keep both of them in separate bags. This way, if you do happen to lose your passport, it will be easier to replace it with a copy available. Don’t forget to pack your camera and an extra battery if necessary since you’ll be snapping a lot of pictures. Sunscreen and lip balm are essentials since you’ll be spending a lot of time in the sun and you should also be armed with insect repellent and a Malaria prophylaxis as well.
