Going on an African safari is a thrilling adventure! To make sure you have a great time with Africa Roar, it’s important to prepare and pack the right things.

Important Papers and Travel Stuff

Before you can start your African adventure, you need some important documents. 

To ensure hassle-free travel, make sure that your passport has six months’ worth of validity from your return date to make sure that it is valid throughout your trip. 

We would suggest to make photocopies of your passport and travel itineraries. Keep one copy with you and leave another copy at home or with a family member. Another neat trick is to send email copies of these important documents to yourself so you may access them through your phone or laptop anytime!

Let’s get right into it, grab yourself a passport holder (you need to keep it safe), a small lock, to secure any zips on your luggage, and a little backpack that can double as a carry-on and a day bag. 

For the flight don’t forget to pack a travel pillow, earplugs, an eye mask, a phone charger, a battery charger, a power bank, and good headphones. Packing these items will make the plane ride a whole lot easier. 

Things you should know when packaging for your African Safari

What to Wear and Bring

When it comes to what clothes to take on an African safari, remember these basics: comfy walking shoes or sturdy hiking boots, and a lightweight raincoat because rain can surprise you.

Also, dress in layers. It can get really hot during the day, but nights in the wild can be quite chilly. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the African sun.

Choose loose, light-coloured clothes. Avoid bright colours, patterns, logos, or heavy textures, as they can attract attention from people and animals and might scare them.

What to Leave Behind

When you’re packing for an African safari, think about what you really need. Electronics like bright chargers and loud music can disturb animals and their homes. So, consider taking old-fashioned things like books, a journal, and a map.

Here are some important things to put in your bag:

  • Binoculars
  • Waterproof flashlight
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • First-Aid Kit

Always remember to be kind to the environment and its creatures. Don’t take anything from nature, like trees, rocks, or animal bones. When you camp or explore, clean up after yourself, recycle, and understand why it’s important to save our natural resources.
