In most instances guests bring too much luggage. We have access to laundry, so dont’ over pack.
Camouflage is permitted and is good for hunting. Darker shades of Green, Brown and Black work well. Digital camouflage in the ‘Sitka’ Range is also very effective and a personal favorite.
Temperatures may drop to freezing at night and rise up to 70/80°F during the day depending on the time of year. Layered clothing that can be removed as it warms up works best. Do not underestimate how cold it can get, Africa is not always as warm as you think!
