Luggage and bags: A small backpack is all you'll need, as well as your camera bag.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Africa is HOT and HUMID, even in the winter!
ONE pair of convertable pants are ideal, as is ONE long sleeved shirt. Light-weight breathable t-shirts and shorts are essential, as are hard-soled hiking boots. BRING A HAT- the African sun is a scorcher!

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Malaria pills NEED to be taken before the trip. Check with your doctor a couple months prior.

Photo Equipment: Lots of film, as well as long-range zooms to get the best animal shots.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Camping in the safari preserves is wonderful. Guided tours will usually provide tents and sleeping mats, but you may need a light-weight sleeping bag.

Miscellaneous: Water, water, water!
