WHAT TO PACK FOR A SAFARI
Tropical clothing is worn throughout the year, but in the winter warm clothes may be needed, especially in the early mornings and evenings.
Game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon, which can be very cold, especially during the winter months. It is possible that you may go out on a hot day, but be faced with a chilly evening on your return.
Remember that layering your clohting will keep you warmer than relying on one thick item.
