1: African Safari Holiday – Documents
Working on the belief that you are visiting Malawi from abroad, make sure you’ve got your Passport, itinerary, travel insurance and e-Tickets.
These are the things that seem so plain in sight and yet are the very things that people mostly forget.
2. African Safari Holiday Prescriptions
It’s so easy to forget your anti-malaria medicine and all other needed medications, and yet they are needed for your trip.
For that reason, place them in your hand luggage because in the event your Checked luggage goes missing, you will have those ready .
You can also add a hat, sun protection, long sleeves, and lip balm to this list, because you will spend long hours outdoors in the heat.
3: African Safari Holiday Tech/Gadgets
No one ever forgets their phone so i guess that is your camera sorted.
However, if you have a spare camera you may want to take that and save that battery life in the event of an emergency.
Now, while most of us won’t forget our phones, we instead forget something very important like binoculars which are beneficial!
4: African Safari Holiday Clothes
“Minimalism is not subtraction for the sake of subtraction. Minimalism is subtraction for the sake of focus.” Anonymous
So with that in mind, try and pack lightweight (minimal is best).
Some earth-toned clothing Like Khakis, Browns should do just fine, and please avoid Combat/Camouflage type garments.
Sadly these are only set aside for official personnel in certain countries and can cause offense.
A lot of safari camps provide laundry services, therefore light packing should be to your benefit.
Please do not forget to pack a windbreaker or fleece, as the night game drives can be chilled.
Please find this list of necessities, you must not forget:
- Comfortable sneakers/sandals/walking shoes for game walks
- Flip-flops or similar for pool or in-room use, or even in safari vehicle
