Suggested Packing List
Clothing – should be predominantly neutral colours – avoid dark/bright colours.
Think layers in the daytime (mornings can be cool but afternoons will heat up and you should cover up legs and arms in the evenings.)
Pack for comfort not style – the lions don’t care what you’re wearing!
Underwear (pack enough for whole trip since ‘smalls’ not usually accepted for laundry)
Long sleeve cotton shirts
Sweatshirt/hoodie/fleece/down jacket – evenings can get cool around the campfire
Light anorak/raincoat (Nov – May) – something that rolls up small
Walking shoes (sneakers okay)
Toiletries (try to avoid high perfumed toiletries – they can attract insects)
Quality high factor Sunscreen
Contact lenses – recommend bringing glasses as dusty conditions can make eyes irritated
Camera plus extra sd cards
Ziplocks bags for camera and phones etc
Lightweight book/novel (most camps have a library/book exchange)
Chargers and adapters
** Note that if your itinerary includes a local domestic flight the luggage allowance is 15kg per person in a soft bag. I recommend the hold-all style that have wheels on one end.
Camps all offer laundry services but please be aware that clothes are usually line-dried and often charcoal ironed – please allow at least 24 hours for laundry to be returned.
