Note that clothing may vary depending on the length of your stay, the location, and your preference. Please consider that there are tsetse flies in the GMAs in Zambia. Laundry is done daily.

The general rule of thumb is to make sure you pack suitable colours (like neutrals) for your hunting days. Most of the time dark khaki or olive green is recommended. Camouflage is allowed but we would stick to real tree and others similar. No army issue. We advise against light coloured neutrals, navy and black.  
We recommend light, loose clothing, so you will stay comfortable in the sun. However, don’t forget that early mornings can be cold and although camp has a fireplace, you may still need some extra layers. 
Items to consider packing are:
  • Cotton hunting shirts – long sleeve
  • Long-sleeved T-shirts 
  • Short-sleeved T-shirts 
  • Long trousers 
  • Thermal hunting jacket
