Packing lists are widely available all over the internet, with every travel agent and tour operator will have their own packing lists, all of which all are very similar. Please find below Eight Points Africa recommended packing list.
Suggestions of What to Pack
It is important to pack light – remember that very strict weight restrictions apply on the light aircraft that ferry you from lodge to lodge within the remote regions – a maximum of 20kg per person INCLUDING hand luggage/camera equipment. Furthermore only soft bags will be accepted – hard suitcases and bags with rigid frames may not be accepted by the pilot, causing considerable difficulties, delays and expense to the traveller. These restrictions are safety-related, and safety will not be compromised.
Clothing should be casual and light-weight, in neutral colours - avoid whites and bright colours like red, yellow and blue. There will be opportunities to do laundry along the way so you don’t have to bring too much.
