Preparing your African hunting safari checklist is pretty simple. A few fundamentals that you would take on any trip or holiday and practical clothing that is suited for the time of year and climate you are traveling to.
We have given you a safari packing guide to work through to ensure that you arrive with everything you need as well as a brief pre-departure checklist and a post-hunt list too.
Please pack simply and travel light.
Bring lightweight cargo pants and a short-sleeved shirt for day wear and long-sleeved shirts for warmth in the evenings as well as keeping the mosquitoes at bay.
If prone to sunburn, wear light long sleeved cotton shirts in the sun. The African sun is harsh and you can burn very quickly and severely if not careful.
Pack a fleece jacket or sweater as well as a windbreaker for sitting in the back of the safari vehicle. It could be chilly when leaving in the morning and returning in the evening while the day will be very hot. The hunting areas can have extreme day and night temperatures.
Sturdy hunting boots and thick socks are advisable. Casual slip-on’s for around the camp.
The best colors for all clothing and shoes are khaki, browns, and greens.
We hope you will find this African safari checklist comprehensive and helpful when packing for your hunting safari in Zimbabwe.
