Behind Safari Vests and Pockets

We recommend you to bring one safari vest during your trip. And thats it. Leave all your dressy clothes at home unless you are to attend a special function in Africa while on a trip. The trick in safariing is to be as lightweight and functional as possible. Lightweight, due to the fact that you cannot (and must not) carry as much gears as you prefer while on the field. Despite from being too impractical, too many luggages would only cause you terrible mess and less ease of travel. More travel tips about Behind Safari Vests and Pockets
