WHAT TO PACK

  •  All paperwork: Camp confirmations, flight information, passport and travel insurance.
  •  Some local currency is a good idea but not essential. (Botswana Pula)
  •  Toiletry bag including medication.
  •  Camera and charger.
  •  Adaptor. Kadizora Camp’s charging points in the tents are the South African type plug (Type M – three round pins). You will also come across the British-type plug in Botswana, Type G – three rectangular pins.
  •  Sunglasses
  •  Sun block
  •  Hat
  •  Insect repellent
  •  Binoculars
  •  Day bag, for keeping things in on game drives.
  •  Headlamp or torch.
  •  Wet-wipes and dry shampoo maybe useful for early mornings when you don’t have time for a shower.
  •  A couple of re-sealable plastic bags.
  •  Formal clothes are not necessary.
  •  A good water proof jacket in the rainy season (November to March). In the dry winter season a wind-proof jacket for early morning game drives and evenings will come in handy.
  • You will need short-sleeved T-shirts and a couple of long sleeved shirts (for sun protection as well as warmth).
  • Loose layers and accessories that protect you from the sun and biting insects. 
  • Stick to bush or neutral colours rather than light/bright or white colours.
  • Zip off pants that turn into shorts are great as mornings start off cooler and then warm up.
  • A warm fleece, a scarf, gloves, and a beanie for early mornings and around the fire in the evenings in the winter months (May to August).
  •  You only need bring two pairs of comfortable shoes. Flat shoes are more practical than heels when walking on wooden boardwalks and sandy paths. Flip-flops are fine for round the pool and boating trips.  One pair of good walking shoes is recommended.
