Depending upon the time of year you are travelling to Botswana, lightweight clothing in neutral colours such as cotton and cotton blends are most suitable. During winter and rainy season months, warm/windproof jackets are strongly recommended.
Walking shoes and sandals are recommended whilst in the bush areas. A swimming costume is also recommended as many lodges do have swimming pools – and you will appreciate it over the summer months! For the evenings around dinner table and fire gathering, we suggest light weight neutral long sleeved shirts and trousers – it is important to keep the mosquitoes away!
Regarding your camera equipment, it would be a good idea to get your travel insurance to cover it. Make sure you carry sufficient memory cards for your cameras – once you start your safari there are very few places to purchase these. We also recommend that you carry a battery charger and extra batteries, as although in many places these can be charged, there may be times when this is not possible – especially whilst on a camping mobile safari. Equipment needs to be kept in soft sided cases and we recommend you carry this with you as hand luggage planes.
