The best clothes to pack for your safari should be casual wear, loose fitting and lightweight, so as to keep you cool and dry. When it comes to colours pick neutral shades over brighter colours for optimum camouflage in the bush. Khaki and green colours are safari favourite and most recommended.
Please note that camouflaged patterned clothes are illegal as they are worn by the local soldiers. Make sure to bring one good fleece or jacket for the very chilly early morning game drives.
