"Batteries are hard to find when in the bush." Namibia Packing List Tip by Acirfa

Namibia What to Pack: 32 reviews and 18 photos

Luggage and bags: Take easy mouldable luggage, the kind that can get battered and squashed into car boots, covered in dust and lugged into the bush.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Walking shoes are a must, flip flops too. Shorts, t- shirts, a warm jersey or windbreaker for cooler evenings and early mornings.
Leave the high heels and make up at home, it's surplus to requirements.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Hair conditioner, hair dries out badly in the dry heat and this helps keep some sort of condition to it. Plenty of sun cream, antiseptic for bites and cuts, malaria tabs, plasters, hayfever pills if applicable. Moisturiser, again a very drying atmosphere, so the skin needs lots of care.

Photo Equipment: DO remember your video camera, camera, plenty of cards or film...........take an adapter to recharge batteries or plenty of batteries, they are like gold dust in the bush believe me. A polarizer and wide angled lens. Mkae sure you keep equipment well covered and cared for, it is an extremely dusty country and many including us lost equipment to dust wrecking it.
