What to Pack for Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero
Clothing on safari should be comfortable and colours should blend in with nature as much as possible. Lightweight, breathable items in neutral colours such as khaki, beige, and green are recommended for game drives, along with comfortable closed-toe shoes and a wide-brimmed hat. Sunglasses and sunscreen are essential for UV protection, while insect repellent and a first-aid kit should also be packed. If you’re travelling during the rainy season, waterproof clothing and sturdy boots are a must. Back at camp, comfort is key, so feel free to dress as you wish; evening dress in the lodges and camps is ‘smart casual,’ there is no formal wear required.
The most practical items to pack for safari are:
- Fleece, sweater or warm jacket for morning and evening game drives
- Light cotton shirts and T-shirts; Blouses or shirts with long sleeves
- Comfortable walking shoes for walking safaris
- Shorts, trousers and chinos
- Sun hat and sun block
- Camera and Binoculars
- For winter pack a warm jacket and a scarf and gloves
A complimentary laundry service is available at all of our camps and lodges in Botswana.
