Sun City Packing List Tips by Jenniflower

Family in the park
Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling.
If you are doing a night hike, bring a backpack and a water bottle.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Some ideas:
Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing. If you're going on safari, pack comfortable walking shoes and khaki, brown or beige casual clothes.
Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and insect bites.
Take a warm jacket for game drives; and, if you're going in summer, make sure it's water-proof.
A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.
Long socks if you are going hiking (extra protection against snakes if you come across one).
Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun screen (Factor 35), headache tablets (from being in the car during the sun all day, may bring on a headache), and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, Tabard for the mossies (mosquitos), cotton wool, germolene etc.
*note* malaria tablets NOT needed in this area!
Photo Equipment: Your camera, with charger, and a SOUTH AFRICAN plug extension.
Bring along the best lens you can - a zoom lens will be needed as the animals are often in the distance and may only look like tiny specks in your photos when they are developed.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you are on an overnight safari tour and will be camping, you will need a roll-up matt, a blanket and a torch.
Find out what cooking implements will be provided by your guide.
Miscellaneous: This info is pretty much the same for all parks in South Africa.
Have a map of Pilansberg handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars
This is so that you don’t get lost (you don’t want to be left in the Park at night!), plus can appreciate all that’s around you that much more.
It is not just a place to sight-see, but a place to learn from too.
Dont forget a torch!
