What Should You Pack For Tanzania Safari

Custom Travel Experiences

Packing for a Tanzania safari isn’t just about the clothing. There are a lot of little quirky things about traveling to Sub-Saharan Africa that you need to know before you go. We either got tips in advance from the awesome safari companies we went with or learned about various policies along the way.

Your Tanzania packing list should include lots of layers, ranging from t-shirts, long skirts, and shorts, to long-sleeved tops, warm sweaters, trousers, and a waterproof jacket. You might also like to bring a light scarf for when you need to cover your shoulders for extra modesty or warmth, or to dip it in water and wrap it around your neck for some cool relief in the heat.
