The Kruger National Park is one of the world’s most beautiful attractions. Filled with all sorts of wildlife and with plenty of things to do and see, it is a wonderful attraction. Spending just a day here is not always a great idea, since there is only so much that you can see in a day, but if a day is all you have, you best make the most of every moment by making sure that you are fully prepared for the trip.
It is incredibly easy to find the perfect Kruger Park safari, by doing a quick and simple online search. Just about all of the best Kruger Park tour operators advertise their safaris online, which means you can spend some time going through all of your options before settling on the best choice for you.
Once you have found the ultimate tour, the one that fits into your budget as well as your tour expectations, not only do you need to book the tour but you also need to make sure that you have done all the planning on your side, so that you can make the most of your adventure.
Aside from organising the documents and other information that you will need to bring along with you, these are the other things that you should do and the things that you should pack, so that you can make the most of your trip.
- Pack the right kind of clothing
All year round the South Africa sun shines brightly. Even in the middle of winter, the heat, especially when you have been in the sunlight all day, can take its toll on your body. For this reason it is important to pack the right clothing so that you don’t overheat and become a hot and sticky mess.
Now you don’t have to go out of your way to buy some fancy safari outfit, in the traditional colours and all. Instead, you can opt for some light cotton or otherwise breathable clothing, and a decent pair of sandals. If you are travelling in winter, pack a good jacket and a pair of boots, as the mornings and evenings can get quite cold.
- Pack sunblock and insect spray
Okay, you don’t need to pack these, since you can quite easily buy them from a local store, but it is so important to protect your skin. Sunblock will prevent the sunburn, and an insect spray is a must, especially if you are visiting in the summer months and mosquitoes are rife.
- Pack a camera
It doesn’t have to be some kind of fancy, super expensive DLSR. With Point and Shoot cameras being so good these days, and generally fit with a fairly decent zoom lens, you can capture beautiful photos on a budget. You might never come to the Kruger Park again, so you might as well make sure that you have a catalogue of memories to look back on fondly.
