Dress code: it is advisable to wear loose fitting and light garments in summer, although you should take extra layers for early morning and late afternoon game drives when it can become a lot cooler. Warm layers are definitely required in winter, although many days are still mild. Sensible and comfortable shoes are recommended. Neutral-coloured garments are advisable in the bush as to not risk alarming the animals. Sun hats, sunscreen and sunglasses are strongly advised, especially in summer.
