If you are doing a hunting trip laundry service is available and we will wash and iron your clothes every day. Because of this, three changes of clothing (in addition to the clothes you are traveling in) will be sufficient.
If you are booking an Photographic, Adventure or Angling trip you will only be able to have laundry done if we are overnighting at one location for more than one night, have a look at your itinerary or speak to us to determine laundry possibilities during you’re safari and pack accordingly.
Always pack a couple of changes of underclothes extra - you never know when a lion might scare you into having an accident!!!
Cross pack!! In other words, if you are travelling in a group - everybody pack half their clothes in everybody else’s suitcase. In that way, if one suitcase goes missing, nobody is left with no clothing!!
NEVER pack any valuables in your check luggage - to avoid theft at the airports. Pack all valuables (camera’s, binoculars, etc.) in your carry on luggage. Also have at least one change of underclothes in your carry on.
On Adventure and Safari trips, recharging batteries is difficult - so invest in some extra batteries or a backup charger.
Please inform us ahead of time if you need to rent a rifle and what you intend to hunt. We will then inform you if we have a rifle available for you. Rifles are rented at USD50.00 per day excluding ammo.
We do however prefer you bring your own rifle as you are comfortable and confident with it.
Make very, very sure you have a pair of good boots!! Make sure they are well broken in before the trip.
Pack a waterproof bag for your electronic equipment.
Pack some extra underclothes - there won’t be much opportunity to do laundry.
