What to bring on your safari?

Home » Planning » What to bring on your safari?

Going on a safari in Tanzania is an exciting adventure, but packing can be a bit overwhelming. At Kalala Tours, we want to make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy your safari experience to the fullest. Here are some essential items to consider when packing for your safari:

  1. Binoculars: Binoculars are a must-have item for any safari. They will allow you to get a closer look at wildlife and appreciate the stunning landscapes that Tanzania has to offer.
  2. Camera and batteries: You will want to capture the incredible wildlife and landscapes on camera, so be sure to bring a camera with extra batteries or charging cables.
  3. Sun protection: The African sun can be harsh, so pack sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses to protect your skin and eyes.
  4. Insect repellent: Tanzania is home to many insects, including mosquitoes. Insect repellent will help protect you from bites and diseases such as malaria.
  5. Comfortable clothing: Pack comfortable and breathable clothing suitable for warm weather. Neutral colors such as khaki, beige, and brown are recommended. Avoid bright colors and patterns that can attract unwanted attention from wildlife.
  6. Good walking shoes: A pair of sturdy, closed-toe shoes such as sneakers or hiking boots are recommended for walking safaris or hikes.
  7. Medications: Bring any necessary medications and a first aid kit in case of emergencies. It is also a good idea to pack some basic over-the-counter medications such as painkillers and antihistamines.
  8. Water bottle: It is important to stay hydrated during your safari, so pack a reusable water bottle to refill throughout the day.
  9. Cash and credit cards: It’s a good idea to have some cash and credit cards on hand for any purchases or emergencies.
  10. Backpack or day bag: Bring a small backpack or day bag to carry your essential items during game drives and excursions.
