Passport Requirements

Please remember that you need at least 2 blank visa pages in your passport for travel.


What to Bring
Your safari suitcase, packed properly, will ensure that you have everything you need for the ultimate African bush experience. Cotton clothing in neutral colours is recommended for all game drives and bush walks. It is best to avoid white clothing and dark colours for bush activities, as they tend to attract certain bugs. Formal wear is not required at any of our lodges.

We recommend packing the following:

  • Comfortable walking shoes/track shoes/hiking boots for walks; and sandals to wear around the lodge.
  • Swimming costume/bathing suits, sun block, sun hat, sunglasses, lip balm, mosquito repellent (Lip balm and mosquito repellent is provided for all our guests, but you are welcome to bring along your favourite brand).
  • Camera and video camera, binoculars, spare memory cards and charging equipment.
  • Please note that in the event of rain during a game drive, waterproof ponchos will be provided for guests’ comfort.
  • All of our lodges are located in remote areas and therefore guests should remember to bring an extra pair of correction glasses (if required), contact lens solution and an extra set of contact lenses(if required) as well as a sufficient supply of any prescription medication.
