Most importantly, if you are flying on a charter flight to any game safari lodge, travel LIGHT as safari charters require 15kg max per person in a soft bag with no solid frames or wheels. Pack t-shirts, shorts, sandals, sun hat, sun glasses, sunscreen and swimming costume, long sleeved shirts, trousers & closed shoes for evenings when mosquitoes are most active. Pack lightweight, neutral colours plus a pair of comfortable walking shoes or boots. A warm jacket, scarf, gloves and thermals ensure comfort on chilly winter drives. Don't forget insect repellent, malaria meds and bring spectacles rather than contact lenses.
