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)

T-shirts

Long sleeve cotton shirts

Shorts

Long pants

Sweatshirt/hoodie/fleece/down jacket – evenings can get cool around the campfire

Light anorak/raincoat (Nov – May) – something that rolls up small

(Swimwear)

Walking shoes (sneakers okay)

Sandals/flip flops

Sunhat/baseball cap

 

Toiletries (try to avoid high perfumed toiletries – they can attract insects)

 

Quality high factor Sunscreen

Lip balm

Moisturizing cream

Insect Repellent

Wet wipes

Shampoo/Conditioner

Body wash

Toothbrush/toothpaste

Contact lenses – recommend bringing glasses as dusty conditions can make eyes irritated

 

First-Aid kit

 

Malaria tablets

Tylenol

Band-Aids

Anti-diarrheal

Benadrhyl/anti-histamine

Neosporine/anti-septic cream

Hydrocortisone cream.

Camera plus extra sd cards

Ziplocks bags for camera and phones etc

Small binoculars

Sunglasses

Journal

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.
