What to pack for a safari
There are a few important items that you need to remember when packing for an African safari tour. Although our expert guides are on hand to help, packing the essentials will ensure you enjoy your trip without any worries or stress. Natural Tours and Safaris have compiled this helpful list of what to pack on a safari tour!
Kenya experiences a number of climates, with coastal areas remaining hot and humid throughout the year. As Kenya is very close to the equator there is no real difference between winter and summer. You should arrive prepared for the sunshine and we’d recommend bringing sun cream, wide brimmed hats and sunglasses.
We would recommend that all your immunisations are up to date before travelling to Kenya or Tanzania and antimalarial tablets are also essential. Insects, especially mosquitoes, thrive in hot conditions so an insect repellent that contains DEET will help to keep them at bay.
The Natural Torus and Safaris team would recommend wearing casual summer clothing on a tour that is easy to clean and quick to dry. Clothes that are olive, tan or other neutral colours are more likely to reflect the heat and keep you cool. They are also perfect for staying inconspicuous on a game viewing drive as bright colours might alert the wildlife to your presence!
