WEATHER / CLOTHING:

Plan your safari for cold weather. The temps at the same time of year in Tanzania compared to the Eastern Cape are completely different. Where in Tanzania it could be very warm, at the same time it may be very cold in the Cape, especially in the mornings.

If you must take shorts, buy the zippered type pants that you can pull the legs on and off. For hunting you will NOT want to wear shorts as the country is rocky and  hard you may have to crawl, if you can crawl. The shorts are for camp, not  in the field here. We CRAWL if you can, but if not your PH will get you in to the game and distance you can shoot at.

Again, please plan for it to be cold and if it’s not you can always take cloths off. NOT taking the right clothing could be a problem with our staff trying to find clothing that fits you. Think of hunting in the U.S. West in October/November and plan for the same.

Remember, most safaris are held in AFRICA'S winter and it can get cold here. Colors of hunting clothes should be greens, khaki, tans, and desert camo will also work. The dark greens/camo usually worn in the U.S. will stick out in most areas we hunt in South Africa. Light colors are NOT good.
