what to take and what to wear
Don’t forget to take a camera, camcorder and binoculars. Stock up with plenty of film and batteries. Also take some insect repellent for spraying on exposed areas of the skin at dusk. Sunglasses, suntan lotions and possibly lip-balm should also be packed. If you do forget something, most accessories can be bought in major centres. For most of the year light clothing is a must. However, during the winter (June-August), it can get chilly in the evenings so pack a sweater or jacket. In restaurants’ smart casual is the norm - short sleeved shirts and slacks for men, blouses and skirts or informal dresses for women - but not shorts and vests. Topless sunbathing is frowned upon. When visiting game reserves neutral colours are preferred because bright hues may unsettle the animals. Wear sensible walking shoes and take a hat for protection from the sun.
