time, particularly when venturing away from major centres to acess the
Suggested Equipment List -

is most suitable for game drives by day. Bring comfortable
but neat and respectable options for dinners - collared shirts for
gents, skirts for ladies.
- Bring your swimming costume as some lodges will
have a pool.

visiting - we will advise on booking.
- Guide books - we recommend Collins Safari Guides,
"Larger Animals of East Africa" and "Common Birds of East Africa".
- Camera equipment and plenty of film as it is very expensive and
very often unobtainable. Digital cameras will benefit from a
photo-dump or extra memory cards. Spare batteries are a must.
- Binoculars - very important, have multiple.
- A good torch (at least a 2 battery cell torch), spare batteries and
- Basic medical kit (aspirins, elastoplast, immodium, antiseptic
cream, anti-histamine cream, etc.)
- Insect repellent eg Tabard and Doom.
- Malaria tablets as prescribed by your GP.
- Tissues / wipes.
- Water bottle for personal use and water purifying tablets.
- Moisturising cream & suntan lotion
- If you wear contact lenses we recommend that you bring along a pair
of glasses in case you get eye irritation from the dust.
