Space is limited in the vehicles and our luggage goes with us from lodge to lodge so please bring soft-sided luggage – one less that 30″ long and one less than 20″ long. I generally use one 30″ bag for my clothing which is sufficient. Remember, we want room for photo gear.
Clothes that are wash and wear, mix and match, casual cotton or poly blends work best. While most lodges have one-day laundry service, I generally do my wash in the tub or sink and hang it in the room to dry.
I like to wear safari-type cloths with lots of pockets preferring tans, browns, grays, and olives staying away from white or extremely light colors. I recommended you bring a hat, two pair of lightweight pants, one pair of shorts, three lightweight shirts (long sleeve or short sleeve), three pairs of socks, comfortable tennis shoes, sandals, a very light jacket or heavy shirt & underwear. Dinners tend to be a very nice affair so I recommend the ladies bring a light dress or skirt and blouse and the gentlemen bring slacks and a nice shirt, nothing formal just nice.
