One of the best things about living in Cape Town is having the opportunity to explore the depths of Africa. Even after being based here for years, I still jump at the chance to explore the great outdoors. From South Africa to Kenya and beyond, there is nothing more captivating than experiencing exotic wildlife in their natural habitat.
As completely worthwhile as it is, planning an African safari is a massive undertaking.
Where is the best place to go? When is the prime time to spot animals? What should I pack for a safari? You guys have been asking me tons of questions about safaris and I’m ready to cover ‘em all!
Typically when it comes to packing, less is more. After all, you can almost always just pop down to the local shopping center and grab whatever you need. It’s a whole different story when you are on safari, however.
More of than not, you’ll have no local amenities.
When you’re out on a safari, you’re fully exposed to the elements and it’s crucial to have everything that you need for the day. On top of that, luggage space is often strictly limited (if you’re taking short bush flights to get to your destination), so you need to be highly strategic.
