Roberts Comments on Gr8 Travel Tips

Taking a Safari Vacation is certainly a top choice for many.  Members of my family have taken an African Safari Adventure and were absolutely thrilled and would recommend this holiday to anyone. 

In fact, my wife and I are making plans for travel to ๐Ÿฆ Africa very soon, to embark on a trip of a lifetime!

Recently, I was approached by a writer online asking to include an article on helpful tips for those thinking of or actually embarking on this type of adventure.

There are some things you should pack to better prepare yourself for a safari trip.  Below are some excellent Safari Adventure Packing Tips.

Getting ready for a Safari Adventure can be fun, if you do it right! 

The key to success is packing the essentials you need without overdoing it. To help you get a solid start on packing for your next adventure, we have provided a list of essential items that you should consider taking with you.

Check it out and read through the tips to get the most out of your trip!

Packing For Your Safari Adventure

Proper Clothing โ€“ What To Wear On Your Safari

Safari Adventure Packing Tips #1

You will want to pack a variety of clothing options as the weather on your safari may vary from day to day. Bring along a couple pairs of shorts and jeans as well, and a few options for short and long-sleeved shirts.

You will also want to avoid bright colors and stick to neutrals like khaki, deep green and brown. A windbreaker will also come in handy should the wind pick up a bit while you are out.

If you are staying at a resort, pack a comfortable evening dress or casual smart slacks. Donโ€™t forget to pack your swimsuit, as many accommodations have ๐ŸŠ swimming pools on site!

Adequate Protection From The Sun

Long socks and enclosed  ๐Ÿฅพ boots/shoes with durable soles will be important for protecting your feet and ankles. Bringing along a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and plenty of SPF sunscreen and lip balm will also be imperative.

These essential items will protect your skin from one of the harshest elements in the world. Along with your sunscreen, pack plenty of ๐ŸฆŸ insect repellent!

The bugs on your trip will be a bit exotic in comparison to those that you find at home. Some of these pesky insects could be carrying disease.

Always be aware of this and be diligent taking preventative measures.

Adventure Gear โ€“ Basic Necessities

Safari Adventure Packing Tips #3

National Park Safari Adventure

For your adventures, you will want to be certain to bring along a few important essentials that can get you through the rugged terrain.

Some of these include;

โœ” A durable backpack with plenty of space and pockets;
โœ” Plenty of snacks and water;
โœ” A lighter and/or waterproof matches (camping);
โœ” A pocket knife (camping);
โœ” Wet wipes;
โœ” A water purifying kit for emergencies;
โœ” A sleeping bag (If camping);
โœ” Travel First-Aid Kit.

Of course, what you plan to pack will relate to the type of Safari you may be taking. There are some amazing ๐Ÿ• Glamping Safaris to experience, where the above items wonโ€™t be necessary. ๐Ÿ™‚

Quality Optics

Safari Adventure Packing Tips #4

The sites you will experience on your first safari will be unlike any other.  Make sure each moment is captured to share and revisit upon your return. Bring a good ๐Ÿ“ธ camera with plenty of memory and easy portability.

Look into waterproof casings and solid straps to protect your camera from damage during your adventure.

A set of good binoculars will allow you to take in each site from a safe distance. Look into your options and do a little research to find the perfect lightweight pair to pack and use on our safari.

You wonโ€™t want to skimp on quality, and finding a reasonably-priced set should do the job for basic site-seeing.
