Whilst these things are very important , a phial of Tea Tree oil works wonders

Those nasty bites , I also leave the lid off as the smell works to deter mosquitoes and other less welcome creatures.

Megan. Thanks for the great reminders for our next visit! If anyone has seen all the styles for safari, you sure have!!!

Looking forward to your next visit, Michael and Terri!

Great deals! Winter morning safari drives can be very chilly – I like to bring a lightweight packable down jacket and a warm beanie. A pair of cycling gloves is a good idea to stay warm and yet still be able to use my camera. And those stylish wide-brimmed safari hats – be sure they have an under-chin strap. Bad form for your hat to go flying off as you’re off-roading after those wild dogs!

Those are all wonderful suggestions, Mary Beth!

Loved the hat options!

Thank you, Vin!

I believe you’ve covered all of the essentials plus a few that make the safari chic list. I’ve found as a photographer a comfortable, multi-pocket vest is invaluable and I recommend to everyone, leave your good jewelry at home – take fun costume jewelry to wear to dinner or buy something fun during your trip. I treasure my silver leopard head necklace purchased two years ago in the Londolozi studio. Thanks for the tips!

Thank you for those wonderful suggestions, Denise. It is lovely to hear that you still have your leopard necklace!

Mine is the hat for sure – finally got a chic one last year and it was so worth it -make sure it has a strap or tightener though or it keeps flying off in the vehicle.

I agree, Kara, mine is also a safari hat. I’m glad you managed to find one!

Interesting blog on Safari wear.

Thank you very much, Christa.

Can’t wait to visit, hopefully sooner rather than later. And your post, Megan, makes the anticipation even greater!

We can’t wait to welcome you to Londolozi, Paul! Hopefully in the very near future.

I’ll be arriving to Londolozi with my family (myself, husband and two children, 24 & 22) the first week in January 2024 and am beyond excited for this bucket list-dream trip! I am wondering about the attire for around the lodge and dinner…I’ve been told and read that people just go straight to dinner from the afternoon safari and don’t change, and then the opposite…to bring a lightweight dress or pants and blouse with sandals, and to “dress nicer” for dinner. So I’d love to know which is correct! We are staying in Cape Town for 5 days before Londolozi and we are trying to only bring carry on luggage…a struggle for this chronic overpacker! Any advice and info would be greatly appreciated!
