What to pack

You will have a weight limit of 15kg in a soft bag for the light aircraft transfers into most camps so you will have to pack lightly. Dinners are casual and most of the camps you will be visiting will have a laundry service.

We recommend a few items that you should bring along:
  • Layers, a mixture of long and short sleeves, are best for the fluctuating temperatures. Stick to neutral colours
  • A thick fleece/jumper - it is cold on the early morning game drives, even in the summer
  • A windcheater/light waterproof jacket
  • Comfortable but sturdy shoes for game walks
  • Flipflops for round the swimming pool or in the outdoor shower
  • Swim suit – even if you aren’t going to the beach many of the camps you will visit will have swimming pools
  • A wide brimmed hat to protect you from the sun
  • Good sunglasses – the African sun is bright!
  • A kikoy or kanga – can be used as a scarf, a shawl, a towel. The list is endless!
  • A small torch – head torches are particularly practical
  • Spare batteries, plug adaptors and charging equipment
  • A good pair of binoculars
  • A notebook and pencil for recording interesting sightings
  • A good book or fully loaded Kindle/iPad for siesta time
If you have any space left in your luggage please consider supporting the local community and bringing supplies with Pack For a Purpose. Visit the website: www.packforapurpose.org

Getting There

East Africa is easily accessible via the international hub airports of Nairobi, Kenya and Da es Salaam and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

Zanzibar is also an international airport and is easily accessible from the national parks of both Kenya and Tanzania.
 
We strongly suggest that you work with a specialist safari tour operator to ensure that you get the most out of your African safari. If you do not know who to contact please speak to us and we can recommend one of our preferred partners.


Donna L

October 2013

"I can’t say enough good things about this camp, their staff, and its location. From the moment we stepped off the plane and were greeted by our guide, Reuben, we were made to feel welcome, and most importantly, comfortable and safe. When we arrived at camp, Richard, the manager, really made us feel at home. Our three boys, aged 11, 13 and 15, shared a tent, and my husband and I had the tent next to it. It was incredible to have such comfortable accommodations in such a remote place - flush toilet, hot bucket shower, an actual bed, and a lounge area."
"The true highlight & one that can make a difference was visiting the school in the local village."
