What to Bring on An African Safari: 6 Tips to Pack Your Bag

You have booked your dream African Safari and now find yourself staring at your travel bag, wondering what to pack. How much do you need to take with you? What type of clothing and what colors are appropriate for the bush?

Packing your suitcase for a safari adventure can be intimidating, and many online packing guides complicate matters with a seemingly endless list of essential items. This can be challenging when confronted with the luggage weight restrictions of light aircraft flights to remote destinations. Here is a simple guide to show you not only what to pack but how.

How to Choose Your Safari Destination: Top 5 FAQs Answered

Little compares to the excitement of planning a much-desired vacation, but before you pull down your favorite suitcase and double-check that your passport is valid, these five questions can help you carefully consider your safari experience.

The time of year, the amount of time away, must-see sites and experiences, and digging for the real reason this spot on the map jumps out at you, all play a part in picking your next adventure destination.

Below are a few questions you can ask yourself to narrow down your options for a safari experience tailored to you.
6 Landscapes and Habitats to Explore on an African Safari

The inherent idiosyncrasy of safari is fueled initially by the diversity of Africa's landscapes and habitats that you can explore during your African safari.

Wild, untrammeled, redolent, vivid, the African landscape creates canvases of eclectic spectacles that extend in a variety of directions, showcasing a patchwork of colors. Open landscapes allow you to see more of the wildlife quickly on the horizon. Closed habitats offer a more hidden wildlife view. Find a salt pan that blinds nature's antiquity or a tangled forest scarred by rumbling elephant herds, a mammoth baobab tree, or the babble of snaking waterways.

Understanding the habitat is essential for what you will see and the intimacy of your experience when on safari, which will brim with infinite possibilities.
