Things to pack when going for Safari

Packaging for an adventurous journey to Africa can be a challenge , particularly with a safari in mind. Find out what you'll need to pack for safari, here are 5 things you pack for safari!

1. Laptop, phone, music, tablet

You need to pack the safari with your camera, music, tablet or laptop, country-style adapter plugs with their respective loaders.

2. Pharmaceutical Preventives

This is a great way of saying 'meds,' too if conditions get worse. You need diarrhoea and vomiting, heartburn, mosquito repellents, paw sanitizers, dicks, indigestion, sore throat, drops on your eyes and, more important than anything else, anti fungal tablets.

3. Binoculars

In our travels around the entire world, we brought small best travel binoculars and normally a monocular. Wherever we go, without the binoculars or monocular, we feel a little dressed down just because we know how much is beyond our normal sight.

4. Chances & Finishes

A good (flashlight) torch is a must. The pitch in the forest may be dark or in the bed at midnight. Ideal for a rechargeable torch but a small battery-powered torch is enough. Also, a good option is the new LED miner's lights which fit on your head (and leave your hands free). Also, a smaller (pencil) torch for emergency or star charts should be seen. Most camps can provide a torch, or walk you back to your tent as required, but it's always a good idea to be self sufficient.

A good book. It never hurts when you are travelling to have an interesting book. For such a short time on safari, you can see and experience so much, that the only way to keep a clear record of it is to write it down. You need restraint, but your safari experience is an invaluable archive.

5. Hand bag

Firstly, try to limit your hand luggage to only one thing, if it makes travel much harder for no other reason than one object. And, yes, the second element counts as a handbag! Obviously, that one item should be of a size acceptable to airlines as carrying-on luggage.
You have ample space to travel papers, prescription medications, shoes, binoculars and even a clothing change in your camera bag while you are a photographer.

Be mindful that there are always limits on anything, like materials, flammables and sharp objects, that may or cannot be used in an aeroplane. The rules often change, so please do double check and take heed.

6. Finally, mind your sense of humour, courage and common sense!

A warning word (or two):

Wear no clothes that can be interpreted as "camouflage" is advisable.By this we mean any kind of "combat" style brown / green colouring. Even if it's the latest trendy post-even if it 's your 14-year-old, even if it's just a scarf.Many African officials have a strong phobia about these clothing and that may likely lead to police interrogation or abuse of you. It has the potential to make you grieve, please don't. Do not take any costly personal safari jewellery. Be minimalist or just take those items you normally wear on a daily basis, like your wedding band, which are cheap earrings.

With regard to securing your luggage, if your suitcase does not have its own locking mechanism, we would strongly suggest using one or more combination locks to secure the zips together. Luggage tampering is sadly occurring at airports. Baggage straps that wrap around your suitcase can also deter, while some airports have shrink-wrapping facilities.

Its Safari Time!

There's no need for money in safari equipment that ultimately collects dust from your closet. Going on a safari does not mean getting dressed as Crocodile Dundee (if this is what you are in, you 're more than welcome!). There are only a few important safari items that you definitely need to bring with you, but it's pretty easy in all!
