Experience Nature Like Never Before
Get Ready for a Trip to the Bushveld and Great Game Lodge Accommodation
If you go to a hotel in the city, you expect everything you might need to be there. Game lodge accommodation is a bit different. Of course, everything you need in a luxury room is probably already going to be there. You only need to plan for the outdoor items, such as binoculars, sunglasses, etc. As luxurious as game lodge accommodation can be, you still need to pack a few essentials.
What You Need for Game Lodge Accommodation
You are setting out on a safari, and dressing up for the challenge is half the fun. Get all those khaki and beige outfits ready, gather an extravagant hat, and get into the role of your favourite wildlife movie character. Below are some tips to make sure you have all the essentials for booking into your private accommodation:
What to Wear
You want to blend in as much as possible when in the wild. You do not want the animals to spot you wearing a bright red jersey and run away because they perceive you to be dangerous. Therefore, stick to neutral colours for the holiday ahead.
Just because it is hot on the day of packing, it does not mean it will stay warm for the entire period. Pack a jacket and boots in case it gets cold. Pack sandals, cotton shorts, and shirts. Remember to pack swimwear if it is a summer vacation. For winter accommodation, take a comfortable jacket for the cooler evenings. Pack one set of cool clothing and one set of warm clothing for each day. You do not want to over pack. Leave your high heels for the office.
Day and Night
For the daytime, you will most definitely need sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and lip care. Do not forget those binoculars on the dining room table either. It is a terrible feeling to know that there are animals, but you cannot see them because they are a bit out of your sight range. For the night drives, take insect repellent and a flashlight with spare batteries. Whether it is winter or summer, these are necessities for game lodge accommodation, as you will be spending a great deal of time outdoors. A raincoat is also something that will come in handy if the lodge does not supply you with one.
What Type of Bird is That?
Considering that you will be seeing many different creatures, including various bird species, a book on animals is not a bad idea. Upon returning to the lodge from your guided walk, you can look up names of the birds spotted on route. Although the guides will be able to answer most, if not all questions you may have, self-study can be a great way to get into the feel of the wild.
For the Years to Come
You never know when you might see an elephant shrew again, so it is best to take pictures. Pack a camera, and make sure to take an extra memory card and batteries. In the future, if you look back and see all the little furry ones that you saw in the bush, it may very well inspire another great expedition. A diary is also a superb way to capture the moments you never want to forget.
For the rest, you can expect the room to include the normal luxuries of five-star hotels. Now that you know what to pack, all that is left to do is to book your stay at our luxury game lodge.
