Tour Packing List

Our recommendations for tour packing list items to bring on. Each of our car contain has first aid kit but we advice that you can bring your own medical supplies. No luggage weight restrictions on safari (unless you are taking local flights) on safari but try to limit your luggage as you can unpacking and repacking quite a lot.Kindly visit Travel Tips for more information.

If starting and ending your trip in Arusha, please leave excess luggage at your hotel in Arusha. If possible please pack your luggage in soft duffel bags as they are easier to pack in the vehicle. We recommend that you keep a small day pack in the car that contains the following items: rain gear, 2 liters of water, camera, film, binoculars, guide books, sun block, lunch, extra layer, passport, money.

You will not have access to the luggage on way until you reach the lodge/campsite after your game drive. On safari you will have several opportunities to buy souvenirs so if you plan to make purchases plan your luggage and money accordingly.
