What clothing do we need?

The most important thing for this hunt is good footwear.  We highly recommend leather boots that are well broken in as well as high quality hiking socks.  This is NOT the trip to break in a new pair of boots or to wear cheap socks.  You may be walking a great deal, and blisters on a safari are no fun.  An extra pair of boot laces is nice to have just in case one breaks.  You may want to bring camp shoes so you can get out of your boots if you like.

Long pants or shorts are both good while hunting.  Pants with legs that zip out and convert to shorts can be quite handy. 

Thick layered clothing for this hunt.  It will be quite cool in the morning but usually will warm up during the day.  Having a nice, warm jacket, a pull over fleece or a sweater you can take off later in the day works well. You will want to bring a pair of warm gloves for the cold mornings as well.  A light rain jacket is also a great idea in case you encounter an extremely rare wet day on your hunt.

As far as color of clothing, camouflage is great if you prefer.  Dark clothing such as olive, dark green and dark tan also works well.  It’s best to avoid light colored khaki clothing if at all possible. 

Don’t forget a hat or cap of your choosing for skin protection.

Belt and a cartridge holder can make life much easier for you during the hunt.

Your laundry is done every day except Sunday so we recommend four pair of undergarments, 4 pair of socks, three shirts and three pants/shorts for your stay.

Most of our hunting guests and their families wear their hunting clothes for dinner as we retire to the fire before and after dinner on most nights.  If you wish to have some other comfortable clothes to wear to dinner, a sweat suit, or jeans and a sweater or sweatshirt would be fine.
