  1. Below is the packing list for Serengeti or Safari in general but one important thing please keep these items “bush colored” (try to avoid strong colors and blazing white) and we suggest taking the “layering approach” to prepare for warm days with cool mornings and evenings; and for possible showers and mud.

    • Jacket: water-resistant and lightweight.
    • Warm Sweater or Fleece Jacket (1-2)
    • Shoes: 1 pair comfortable, or sturdy walking shoes; and 1 pair casual shoes for evenings in camp.
    • Bathing sandals (flip flops etc.) are very useful for shower times.
    • Socks: 3-5 pair.
      Pack at least three complete changes of clothing(avoid blue and black colors if possible) to include:
    • Trousers: 2- 3 pair (lightweight); 1-2 pair shorts (optional).
    • Shirts: lightweight fabrics (cotton or breathable synthetics) and long sleeves are best as they are adjustable.
    • Hat (the brim’s the key)
    • Insect Repellent.
    • Sun-block-factor 20 plus- the non-greasy type.
    • Sunglasses and reading glasses if needed (bring a spare of each).
    • Personal Toiletry items that you will need during your stay.
    • Personal medical items and a Small First Aid kit: 1 kit per group.

    Optional Items

    • Your camera, with its carrying bag. Dust is the major problem for most cameras so a lightweight dust proof zipper bag is useful and should be large enough for your camera mounted on your largest lens.
    • A 220-volt charger for all your battery (bring at least two spare batteries) charging needs for video cameras, shavers and anything else. We use a 220-volt with British plugs outlet powered by Solar -but it is wise to bring back up chargers.
    • Binoculars- 8 or 10 x 40’s are the best.
    • Your own small torch (flashlight). One is supplied in the tent.
    • Small rucksack (day pack). This is very important and very useful.
    • Small penknife. Ensure that you check it in with your luggage at airports!
    • Field Guides – A large selection is carried is available at the camp lounge– but it is always nice to have your own.
