Being on safari is is one of the best trips you can take but packing for a safari can be a challenge. So while roughing it up on safari Kenya, here  are some useful tips.Kenya_safari

Clothes

Safaris tend to be quite dusty, so khakis are obvious choices when it comes to concealing the dust.

Comfortability will become essential on the trip as you will be bumping around on barely-there roads. Focus on loose layers that you can take off and on depending on the weather. Long sleeved shirts and trousers  not only help keep you warm at night but equally can prevent excessive mosquito bites.getting-ready-for-safari

If visiting Mt. Kenya or the Aberdare ranges, pack in some thermal clothes. On the other hand if visiting the arid or semi-arid area of Kenya like  Maasai Mara or Tsavo , light clothing like shorts, cotton t-shirts etc are necessary. Bright colors are a definite no-no.

Another thing to note is that most (actually all!) lodges you’ll be staying for the safaris  have swimming pools, so don’t forget your bathing suits.

Shoes

Which shoes you carry depend on the kind of safari you decide to have. For example if you’re going on a walking-safari, carry sturdy hiking boots. One thing to keep in mind, for any safari really, is getting shoes with thick soles. It is also prudent to carry an extra pair of shoes.

Bags

Safaris include moving between several lodges/locations and different modes of transport. with this in mind, choose a soft-sided bag. Choose a bag that can be mobile with the least amount of fuss.

A day-pack and a spare small bag can be quite handy too. This is because one has the chance to leave their bulk luggage at their lodge.Our-Safari-Vehicle-  was-ist-eine-safari
