Upon booking your safari you’ll receive documents that include a complete packing list. Suffice it to say, though, that your clothing should be comfortable and casual. Khaki, olive brown and tan clothing increases your chance of seeing wildlife and offers the added benefits of concealing dirt. Since laundry service will be available in many of the places you visit, you should avoid temptation to over pack, and any way the domestic aircraft flights will have a luggage limit weight of 15kg or 33 pounds.
Is international airfair included in the cost of your website holiday?
International airfair is not included, because we have found that most of our guests prefer to arrange their own flight using frequent flyers and other means.

Please, not that all the regional and local flight and other transportation during your trip are included on a price.
