Experience Nature Like Never Before
What to Pack for Stays at Wildlife Game Lodges in South Africa
South Africa is home to many private wildlife game lodges, each offering unique experiences. However, if you want the epitome of luxury whilst having the best of safari, we recommend booking your accommodation at our private game lodge and spa, one of the best wildlife game lodges in the Limpopo.
Nevertheless, excitement about the trip can easily cause you to pack far too many items, or to forget essentials for your stay at one or more wildlife game lodges. Since we know how important it is to prepare for any safari trip, we provide you with a few tips on packing for your trip and enjoying every experience to the fullest.
Pack for Warm and Cold Weather
The Limpopo province is located in a part of the country where you can expect the temperatures to reach in the thirties during the summer months. The winters are mild. However, as hot as it can get during the day, you can expect the evenings to be cooler. You thus want to pack for the warm days and cooler evenings. T-shirts, blouses, and light trousers are well-suited as daytime apparel with a warm jacket and trousers for the eveningwear.
Colour Choices are Important
Though definite proof is lacking when it comes to the colours certain animals can see, it is best if you dress in neutral colours, such as green and khaki or beige rather than red, blue, pink, purple, or orange. You want to blend in rather than stand out on safari walks offered by the wildlife game lodges. Besides, khaki does not show dust as easily as white or yellow.
Protect Against the Sun
The sun can be unforgiving in the Bushveld. As such, do not leave for your trip to one or more wildlife game lodges without your wide brimmed hat or a ranger cap. Protect your eyes with good quality sunglasses and your skin with sunscreen. Of course, when you book your stay at our lodge as opposed to other wildlife game lodges, you can enjoy health and beauty treatments at our African spa to ensure your skin stays hydrated after a few days in the sun.
Walking Shoes for the Bush
Scorpions, snakes, thorns, and spiders are part of safari trips. You cannot enter the bush with open shoes. However, having open shoes for your room or time at the main lodge is recommended. Do pack a pair of quality walking shoes, suited for walks in the African bush. You need such for every time you leave the safety of the game vehicle.
Your stay at any of the wildlife game lodges in Limpopo is also about visual experiences. You will want to spot as many animals as possible. For such, pack a pair of binoculars, your camera, and your cell phone. Switch off the cellphone while on safari trips. You only need it for emergencies or to forward pictures and videos of your unique experiences to friends and family members. Remember to pack an extra memory card for the camera, as well as batteries.
Bathing Suit for Swimming and Tanning
A costume is essential for the warm summer days, as you may want to spend an hour or so sun bathing or swimming.
If you plan on working out while you stay at one of the wildlife game lodges, you will want your gym clothes.
Book, Puzzle, or Board Game for Relaxation
Take along a book, board game, puzzle, or crossword puzzle for the rare moments of doing nothing, or simply if you want to enjoy having alone time.
Now that you know what to pack, book a weekend or week at our private game lodge for a luxury wildlife experience of a lifetime.
