A practical pair of walking shoes is highly recommended to bring on your safari. As vibrant colours and patterns are known to startle many animals and birds, subtle, neutral colours including browns, greens, tans and greys are most appropriate to be worn on game drives during your safari adventure. Summer clothing such as short sleeved t-shirts and shorts or khakis are appropriate for warmer days. Although the beaming sun is hot in the middle of the day, mornings and evenings are cool after the sun goes down. It is recommended you come prepared with clothing that you can layer, and at least one warm jacket and full-length pair of pants. It may be useful to bring a light rain jacket and other water-resistant gear for days when there are heavy rains.
Other items you may consider packing:
Lip balm, other sun protection such as a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, your bathing suit, a sufficient amount of all other necessary clothing – underwear, shorts, trousers, t-shirts, long sleeved shirts, sleepwear, a money belt, hand sanitizer, electrical adapters for all your electronics (Electricity in East Africa is 240 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. If you travel to East Africa with a device that does not accept 240 Volts at 50 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter. It is recommended that you carry a three-pin square adapter (type G) to charge any electronic equipment, as plug sizes may vary from the type your equipment uses.), flip flops and sandals to wear when you are lounging around the pool or shower, Tylenol or ibuprofen etc.
