Tanzania Safari Packing List

Remember that you will spend a great deal of time in the safari car, viewing wildlife. However, you may participate in walking safaris or cultural tours throughout your safari, so you should have practical, comfortable and sturdy walking shoes. Please leave high heels, fashion sneakers and platforms for other occasions. Weather in Tanzania can vary depending on the altitude and time of day. It is wise to bring layers for added warmth, especially in the early mornings and late nights.

  • 1 -2 long sleeved shirts
  • Warm sweater or light jacket (the temperature in the Ngorongoro falls to 0 degrees Celcius in the evening and in the morning)
  • Regular, light shirts or T-shirts (preferably 1 pc for every day of safari)
  • 1-2 pairs of light cotton trousers
  • Shorts or a loose skirt, for the ladies
  • Swimsuit / trunks (most lodges offer a swimming pool); A hat, for the sun (visor or other cap is also acceptable).

You may note that many travellers on safari wear khaki or neutral colours, and avoid bright whites or florescent colours. There are several reasons for this: firstly, you will blend in with nature better by wearing neutral tones, whether you are walking or seated in the car; secondly, some areas of Tanzania are very dusty and khaki-collared items are less likely to show discoloration from the dust of the safari than white garments.
