Like any trip, before you go, you will need to pack, so make sure you pack smart. First and foremost, as you will never see sights like the ones you will see in Africa, ever again, you will need to make sure you pack a camera, and by camera, we mean a proper camera, not just the one on your smartphone. Not only will you need a camera you will also need plenty of other electrical accessories including batteries, storage cards, and a charger. You will also want to pack binoculars to help you get great views of the animals and their surroundings in the distance. Now, as for you, as it will be hot, you should pack lightweight clothing, plenty of sun protection, sunglasses, and a hat. As you will also want to blend in without having the animals see you coming from miles off, choose colours that blend in to the natural landscapes. Obviously you don’t need to kit yourself out in full camouflage, but do try to blend into the landscape. You’ll need insect repellent, plenty of comfortable clothes for dining out, a first aid kit, disinfectant spray, towels, and of course, a bathing suit for any pools you come across. Remember, the nights also get pretty chilly, so don’t forget warmer clothes for in the evening.
