Suggested luggage list

When on safari, a lightweight, versatile wardrobe is most suitable. The weather fluctuates between extremes of heat and cold, meaning layers of clothing are the best option. We have developed a range of safari wear that is comfortable, functional, and affordable.  Click here to contact our African Travel Specialist for our latest safari wear collection.
