CHECKLIST



The following list is a general guideline of what to bring on the safari:

  • Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime.
  • A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun, this should have string/straps if standing in the van or jeep as it could be blown off.
  • Plenty of sun protection, lotion or cream (High SPF).
  • A good pair of binoculars (there’s usually just one pair in vehicles).
  • Long trousers and long or short-sleeved shirts for the evening and protection from mosquitoes
  • A fleece/jumper/sweater for the early morning (or a safari jacket) and evening game drives, as it tends to get very chilly, especially in the highlands and in the Masai Mara.
  • Plenty of film or flash card memory for your camera and a battery charger for all electronic devices.
  • A small first aid kit.
  • Swimming costumes/bathing suits as most of the lodges and camps have swimming pools.
  • A good pair of sunglasses as you are on the equator where the sun is very powerful. Prescription sun spectacles are not recommended as may scratch or fall off the vehicles.
  • A pair of safari shoes or trekking boots.
  • A pack of wet wipes.
  • Mosquito repellent.
  • Bottle’s or jugs of water to keep you hydrated. Spending a lot of time in the sun, even when wearing hats and sunglasses will dehydrate you in most cases.

WATCH OUT


  • On a safari, be prepared for bumpy and dusty roads. These can be irritating to the contact lens wearers. Eye drops and an extra pair of glasses are sensible protection.
  • Pack light. Laundry facilities are available throughout your safari at extra cost. Remember your weight limit on your return from East Africa.
  • Our equatorial sun is strong. Too much can cause dehydration, nausea, dizziness and headaches. We recommend that you wear sunscreens and a hat, as well as a strong pair of dark glasses.
  • DO NOT take photographs of the locals without permission. Never take photographs of the military, policemen in uniform, and the President or Government officials.
  • Always keep your camera loaded and ready for action. You never know when it is going to start
