What to pack

WHAT TO PACK

Generally, casual comfortable clothing is suitable throughout the year. The most practical items to pack are:

  • Khaki, brown, white and beige colours.
  • Light cotton tops and cotton trousers/shorts in summer.
  • Long sleeved blouses/shirts for game drives; they will protect you from the sun and from mosquitoes.
  • Safari trousers for evenings and cooler days.
  • Fleece or sweater and a warm jacket for game drives (and at Ngorongoro Crater).
  • Swimwear is a must for the beach and most safari lodges have decent pools.
  • A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.
  • Comfortable walking shoes.
  • For climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and Meru, thermal underwear, light layers, sweater, warm jacket, good socks and sturdy boots are recommended.

A FEW FINAL HELPFUL HINTS

  • Never destroy bank notes.
  • Please show respect for local laws, customs and sensitivities of your host country.
  • Do not get out of the vehicle in the parks, without asking the driver.
