Get packing. What you need to know.

  1. Light coloured clothing - Avoid bright colours, especially red and white as these attract animals to you (yikes!)

  2. Wide brim hat - The scorching sun takes no mercy so make sure to get a wide hat to protect your face and neck

  3. Suncream - A more obvious one but we always end up forgetting the basics in the mad rush to get away

  4. Light waterproofs - The weather isn’t always as predictable as we expect so to rather be safer than sorry, pack a few light layers which you take off as and when you need

  5. Sunglasses - Shielding your eyes from the African sun will not only give you a better view of the wildlife but also protect your eyes

  6. Durable shoes - Unless you’re hiking, all you’ll need is a good, comfortable pair of trainers that will be able to keep you on your feet for longer

  7. Repellent - Just to be on the safe side, insect repellent can be packed. You don’t want any pesky bugs interrupting your adventure!

  8. Battery packs - no doubt you’ll be snapping non-stop so make sure to keep a spare battery or bring a battery pack so you can snap all day
