"Packing List" South Africa Packing List Tip by Gypsy_Saskia

South Africa What to Pack: 46 reviews and 13 photos

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you go to the Kruger area, make sure you start taking malaria tablets in time. You can by these in South Africa, both Lariam and another (less agressive) brand that is very good (forgot the name).

Photo Equipment: Bring or buy loads of film! This country just makes you take photos again and again!

A zoom camera is great for photographing the wildlife, especially in the parks where you have to stay in your car.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
