Safari Vest

Don't forget to pack a good safari vest.


If you are planning to go on an adventurous trip to Africa, think about the right clothing and equipment . A good safari vest  is a quite important factor. It is advised to no wear blue clothes, because blue attracts the Tsetse fly. Its bite is painful and can inflict dengue fever, a form of sleeping sickness. In some areas you are not allowed to wear  a camouflage  safari vest or other camouflage clothing if you're not a member of the country's military.

Clothing is simple, layered and of a neutral color like green, khaki or olive. Long sleeved shirts are ideal for the cool  mornings.. Long pants protect you from  thorns and also from mosquitoes and ticks. An extra sweater and a warm safari vest can be useful for those cold mornings. You will also need a hat for protection from the sun.

Apart from a safari vest, also bring other clothing including a belt, underwear, casual clothing for the evenings or for side trips, comfortable boots or walking shoes and socks. Make sure your walking shoes are well worn in prior to arrival. Blisters can ruin a trip.
