What can we say? It was without doubt the best holiday either of us have ever had, and we have been on some good ones in the past. We would like to thank Paul for all his hard work, great patience and his very good advice.

What to bring
What to bring can very from place to place but as a general rule the following list will cover most eventualities.
- Strong insect repellent (good supply of roll on or spray with Deet base)
- Anti-Histamine cream and tablets
- Any personal medication
- Three sets of cotton safari clothes in bush colours i.e green, brown dark khaki; avoid white and bright colours.
- Two sets of lightweight cotton evening wear long sleeves and long trousers will minimise insect bites
- Warm fleece
- Warm lightweight jacket for early morning game drives and cooler winter evenings
- Sports bra for ladies will reduce discomfort on bumpy roads
- Good pair of lightweight walking boots if on a walking safari otherwise a pair of thick soled trainers will suffice
- One pair of binoculars per person (Best you can get)
- One torch per person with long life batteries
- Camera Equipment including 200/300 mm Telephoto lens and lots of fast film and flash film. Digital cameras are particularly good for taking lots of photos
- Cleaning equipment for cameras and binoculars and a dust proof bag to carry them
- U.S dollars cash (bring smaller denomination notes) are the most readily exchangeable form of currency; credit cards are accepted in most camps
As transfers will be in small aircraft with a baggage capacity which may vary between 12 and 20 kgs, it is essential to pack all you safari equipment and clothes in a soft lightweight bag.
Clients who are going on to other destinations on a combination holiday may be able to arrange for a suitcase to be left at our agents offices or the airport while on safari.
