How much clothing should I bring with me?

If you are staying in one of the main camps, no more than 3 days supply of clothing will be needed. Our staff will clean and press your clothes daily. If you have two pairs of boots the spare set will be polished. If touring, we will be going from place to place. One set of clothes for each day is recommended.

What can I expect the weather to be like while I am there?

This depends greatly on the region traveled to and the time of year. Remember South Africa's seasons are reversed from the Northern hemisphere countries, with April through October being the cool, dry fall and winter months.  For most part, daytime temperatures are pleasant and range from 60 to 80 degrees F.  Night time temperature gets chilly especially close to the rivers. Bring a warm jacket.
