You can’t wait to go on a safari trip, but one problem blocks you: how to dress for a safari? You should already leave aside your overdressed clothes, which are useless in nature, and refer to the climate and customs of the country where you will be staying before packing your luggage.

Clothes to blend in with nature

Animals are very sensitive to noise and easily notice brightly colored things. To be able to approach them, it is necessary to be discreet and silent. It is therefore not very prudent to wear shiny and noisy jewelry on safari. And concerning the clothes to wear, they must be neutral colors (khaki, brown, beige, …), not synthetic but preferably cotton, which does not emit noise, and equipped with pockets that can hold equipment such as cameras and phones, ideal to blend into the landscape, without being noticed by animals. Conversely, flashy or flashy colors can attract the attention of certain animals or insects that confuse dark colors with the coat of certain mammals.

Clothes to cope with the vagaries of the climate

Usually the safari takes place at the beginning of the day and at the end of the evening, and during this time the temperature varies from the warmest to the coolest. It is therefore necessary to always prepare appropriate clothing in advance for this kind of weather change: T-shirts and shorts or pants made of cotton or other softer materials, and a parka to protect yourself from humidity, in case it rains, with soft, comfortable and very practical shoes. As an essential accessory, do not forget the scarf, which is very practical: against the sun, rain, cold, etc …, sunglasses and hat.

Respect the traditions of the country by dressing decently

In general, all countries with safari sites have remained very traditional and continue to preserve their customs and cultures. To be welcome, it is best to dress simply and above all decently. Do not dress too close to the body, too short, or too low-cut as this may shock the local population.
