Seven packing essentials you shouldn't forget
For wildlife shots, bring the best quality gear you can afford, preferably with a zoom lens.
Sunblock and layers
Some safari vehicles are open-topped, so it’s wise to wear a high factor suncreen and a hat. During the southern winter, pack a fleece, warm hat and gloves.
For bushwalks, lightweight shoes are generally more comfortable than sandals or boots.
Bring a pair to ensure you don’t miss a thing when your guide points out wildlife.
This is worth bringing, even if you’re not visiting a malarial area during your trip.
Camps stock the basics, but you should always pack any prescription drugs and anti-malarials you may require.
Many camps now supply refillable bottles to help reduce plastic waste, but bring one if you have your own.
