Dimensions of Checked Baggage


The dress code is casual.

Choose neutral tones and light fabrics, preferably cotton. These fabrics work best in a hot climate. Do not pack white shirts, they make you highly visible to the animals and try to avoid red which attracts animals.

We recommend that you pack a couple of long sleeved shirts and a pair of long trousers. The evenings can be chilly and they are also good for keeping mosquitoes and other insects at bay.

Remember to bring a warm jacket. Although we are moving into spring and the weather is heating up, the evenings are still cool. Evening and early morning game drives can get very chilly. The secret is to wear several layers that you can take off or add to as needed.

A good durable pair of trainers is all that is needed. You might also like to pack a pair of sandals for around the pool.

Remember to bring your swimwear and sun hat.

  • Sunscreen

    Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF or sun protection factor of between 30 and 50. Do not underestimate the power of the African sunshine.

  • Sunglasses

    It is a good idea to pack a pair of sunglasses as the glare from the sun during the middle of the day can hurt your eyes and give you a headache, especially if you are not used to it.

  • Medical Kit

    Pack a small bag or medical kit with some pain killers, any chronic medications (enough for the trip), any vitamins etc. Take lip balm and a small bottle of moisturiser.  The lodge provides insect repellent but you can also carry some of your own if you have a preferred brand.

  • Anti-Malaria

    The Kruger National Park is in a malarial area. Please consult your doctor about prophylaxis before your trip and do not forget to pack it.
