 How To Choose Safari Clothing

  • Stick to toned down colors, and avoid bright colors, as well as solid blacks and whites
    – You’ll spend lots of time in the car so there it isn’t that important, but be sure to at least bring toned down colored clothes for the nature walks.
  • Regional climates vary greatly throughout the season, be prepared for hot and cold temperatures
  • Choose quick-dry fabrics

    Then you’ll have a great allrounder and don’t have to change lens surrounded by dust
  • GoPro with housing
  • Extra batteries
  • Chargers
  • Powerbank (it may be hard to find a power supply in the bush)
  • Cleaning cloth/brush (to dust of grit and sand from the camera)
