10 Things You Should Pack Before Heading To Sediba
A trip to South Africa is the trip of a lifetime. Traveling to a far-off place, immersing yourself with nature and getting up close and personal with wild animals is a thrilling adventure and one to definitely look forward to. But what are the essentials you'll need for this trip? How exactly do you pack for a wild adventure? Thankfully, this South Africa packing list has everything you need so that you know exactly what to bring when you plan your trip to Sediba.
When packing your wardrobe for your trip to Sediba, keep in mind that the weather in South Africa can sometimes be unpredictable. Make sure to bring light clothes that you can layer such as think long-sleeve tops layered over T-shirts, a light, down jacket that folds away, and lightweight jumpers, sweaters, and cardigans. By doing so, you’ll be prepared for whatever activities and weather fluctuations South Africa throws at you, whether it’s cold mornings but hot afternoons on safari or evening drinks after a long day. Bring at least one outfit for a fancy night out. It's always nice to have one dressed up dinner or cocktails during vacation and you want to make sure you'll be dressed for the occasion.
Packing footwear depends on the activities that you intend to do during your trip. You can never go wrong with bringing comfortable trainers for the game drives, a pair of flip-flops for relaxing around the pool, and dress shoes.
Phone, camera, laptop, chargers, kindle, and all your other toys. Make sure to bring spare batteries for your camera and store all them along with the cords and cables in a waterproof electronics bag.
South Africa is a country with good medical facilities and pharmacies, however, it is still advisable to always be prepared. If you have personal prescriptions, make sure to pack these with you. South Africa may not carry certain brands of medication that work for you or that you prefer, so take a little kit with you which includes painkillers, plasters, antihistamines, ibuprofen, and paracetamol.
Sun and Insect Protection
You will be spending a lot of time outdoors. Make sure to bring sunscreen with at least SPF 30. You don't want to ruin your trip and beautiful vacation photos with badly burnt skin.
Make sure to pack some insect repellent as well. The part of Limpopo Province which is home to Sediba is malaria-free. However, mosquitos, in general, are still quite annoying and their bites hurt and itch! Save yourself from being their next meal and layer on the bug spray.
