Check out these essential tips that every safari traveler should know:

  • Wear neutral colors to blend in with the surroundings. Browns, greens, and khakis are recommended. Look for clothes with light and breathable fabrics, which produce minimal noise during movement.
  • Clothes with bright colors and loud patterns can scare off wildlife. Avoid camouflage because there are some areas that only allow this pattern for military personnel.
  • Avoid white clothing during daytime for practical purposes, unless you don’t mind looking dirty and dusty during your trip.
  • Wear clothes in layers. The temperature will depend on the time of the year and your location, but generally it’s going to be cool in the morning, become scorching hot during the afternoon, and turn cold at nighttime. Wearing layers means you can easily take off or put on clothes to suit the temperature.
  • Protect your arms and neck from the sun by wearing long-sleeved shirts with airy fabric
    Wear a hat to protect your head and face from the sun
  • A pair of combat trousers will give you comfort due to its relaxed fit and convenience due to its numerous pockets where you can store essentials such as camera, binoculars, and sunscreen.
  • Don a pair of trainers so you can climb and walk comfortably in any terrain
  • Choose sunglasses with polarized lens to protect your eyes from harmful rays and still let you see everything perfectly
  • Wear light-colored clothes for evening drives or meals. Light colors do not attract mosquitoes.
