What to Wear:
Months: September to April
Cool functional attire preferably in dull darker shades to create uniformity with environment. Always remember a good hat as well as sunscreen. Midday temperature Summers can reach upward of 40 degrees and afternoons can experience thunder showers. All vehicles are equipped with blankets and waterproof ponchos for our guests.
Winter Months: May to August
During the winter months we typically experience blue skies with a daily average temperature of 20 - 25 degrees celcius. Early morning and late afternoons are cooler and we recommend warmer attire as this is amplified particularly when traveling on an open safari vehicle.
We have a partnership with Trappers Trading Co. locally and can facilitate any clothing or technical wear requirements with prior notice.
