"What to bring with?" Johannesburg Packing List Tip by Jenniflower

Johannesburg What to Pack: 14 reviews and 5 photos


Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Some ideas:

Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing.

Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and possible insect bites.

A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.


Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun screen (at LEAST Factor 35 I would say), headache tablets, and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc.

Photo Equipment: Your camera, with charger, and an appropriate plug extension/adaptor.

Miscellaneous: Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
