Before choosing (booking) the right Safari, you may have some initial queries that require an answer. We hope that the answers below, to some of the most frequently asked questions, will clarify things for you.
1) buy a cheap phone when you land and pick up a local sim card (readily available at any kiosk). They only cost a couple bucks and you can buy phone credit as needed.
2) bring your own un locked cell and install a local sim. Just be wary of cell-phone envy- those who are admiring your fancy cell phone might just run off with it
- Layers: at times on safari, it can be very cool in the early mornings and late nights, and hot during the day. To be most comfortable, pack many light layers.
-Binoculars. Some companies will provide them, but there’s no harm in having your own.
-Camera with a zoom/wide angle lens + plenty of camera film, spare memory sticks for digital cameras and spare batteries for video cam. **Even if you forget everything else, don’t forget your camera.
-Comfortable walking shoes.
-Insect repellent (Doom or other).
-Khaki, brown or beige colors are recommended to wear during a game drive/walk because white and bright increase your visibility to the animals (think “safari theme”)
-Shorts/skirts and t-shirts for daytime.
-Sun block & lip balm.
-Wide brimmed hat.
-Bathing suits (if your lodge has a pool in the middle of the Serengeti, you definitely don’t want to forget this item).
