Packing Guide – Botswana Adventurer Safari

When travelling on a mobile safari, luggage must be compact, light and easy to pack into the trailer. Each guest is strictly limited to 20kg of luggage in a soft carrier bag and an additional small day bag plus limited camera equipment.


We suggest you bring the following:

  • Good quality flashlight and spare batteries/bulbs – a headlamp is most useful.
  • Camera with spare batteries, film or memory cards
  • 12v (Cigarette lighter type) adaptor for charging
  • Good quality pair of binoculars (8×30 or better)
  • Sleeping Bag, pillow and towel (sleeping bags can be rented for US$30 per bag and need to be booked in advance)
  • Natural toned, light weight clothes
  • Light weight long-sleeved tops and long trousers to help prevent insect and mosquito bites
  • Comfortable shoes as well as sandals or flip-flops
  • Light, compact raincoat is a good idea for sporadic summer thunderstorms (Nov – Apr)
  • Fleece or sweater and a warm jacket for colder winter nights (May – Aug)
  • Beanies, scarf and gloves for the cold early morning game drives in winter – it can reach 0˚C and below
  • Sun block, lip balm, sunglasses, hat, swimsuit, insect repellent and malaria prophylaxis
  • Toiletries and any medicines
