        Travel insurance
        Import paperwork supplied by us (once you book) for your Rifle and ammo.

Please travel light. You should also bring a day pack to carry any essentials you might need whilst
on safari

Dressing for Safaris:

On safari most people wear shorts and a T-shirt during the day and put on long sleeved shirts and long
pants in the evening for warmth as well as protection from mosquitoes. Should you be particularly
sensitive to the sun a loose cotton shirt is essential during the day. Khaki, brown, olive and beige colors
are best for hunting safaris and game walks. White is not a suitable color for these activities. Firstly it
increases your visibility quotient to the animals you want to get a closer look at, and secondly, it will get
dirty very quickly. Fleece or sweater and a windbreaker for game drives, because it is highly possible that
you may go out on a hot day, but be faced with a chill evening on your return. Remember that layering
your clothing will keep you warmer than relying on one thick item.

Clothing to Pack:

         2 pairs khaki cotton pants (jeans are rather hot) ( cameos is good)
         2 pairs sturdy shorts
         2 long sleeved shirts (for sun protection as well as warmth).
         1 Heavy Hunting Jacket
         1 waterproof windbreaker
         1 pair sturdy walking or hiking boots or running shoes and 1 pair sandals
         3-5 short-sleeved shirts or T-shirts
         5 changes underwear and socks
         1 hat with a brim (baseball caps might cover your nose but not your ears and neck).

The African sun can be very harsh. Sunburn on safari, in the heat, is not fun.


 Personal first aid kit; Personal medical kit , bring along prescriptions for renewals and customs
 Toilet kit including shampoo and soap
 Insect repellent and sunscreen factor 30 +

Equipment Requirements:

 Good quality sunglasses plus protective case
 Good pair of binoculars

                        Your preferred hunting rifle or bow with ammo.
                                     Let the Safari begin!
