We advise you to get a journal for safari because you never known what you could use those written memories for when you return home.

Brandt travel guide

This is a wildlife guide very informative and useful. By reading through it, you will get to mention the names of animals you will see and help you to differieciat the different animals especially those that are very similar in appearance. That is to say an eland and a bushbuck which are both antelopes. Having your travel guide will help you to identify range of animals you see on your Uganda safari boots.

First aid items include medications, malaria regiments and mosquito repellent. If you are on medication of any   kind, you need to carry it with you on safari and do not forget your malaria regiment. Chances of getting malaria are minimal but for you to be on safe side pack your regiment. Always consult your doctor or a travel clinic for any description of medication you might need on safari.

The right footwear

There is nothing enjoyable on safari than putting on comfortable shoes that fits a safari activity. Just try mountain climbing in walking shoes, it’s when you will prove how important it is to have the right shoes for the experience. If your safari includes mountain gorilla trekking, chimpanzee habituation, hiking, volcano climbing, foothill hikes, walking safari all these will require you to put on right footwear. Before you get to safari you need to first get used to the boots for you to venture on your safari activity. So get yourself a pair before your safari and always remember to pack them.

During evening hours, you will enjoy sitting around a campfire with your friend’s chat about the day activities, meet new faces and experience is made richer by the sentiments.

A hat with a Brim

Never take a hat as a small thing, in African wilderness it is not. You need a wide brim hat to protect you from the direct sunshine. And you know African countries tend to be hot and a hat with a relatively wide brim will make your safari much more comfortable, buy one when you arrive in Uganda for your safari.

A sprinkle of patience and common sense is needed. Note, African wilderness is not a zoo in the west where animals are put on display and you really known what to expect. Here in Africa, you need to search for wild animals and there is possibility of seeing them.
