Afternoon light beams across the Zambezi River, as hippos wake from their midday siesta to compare tales from the land of nod. Following a thrilling day of waterfall chasing, jet boating, and wildlife viewing, we prepare for sundowner cocktails around the fire at Tongabezi Lodge.
When packing for a safari, you’ll want to bring layers to transition with the temperature. Especially if you travel during the African Winter, it can go from cold to hot very quickly. Since you’ll be out on a game drive or boat ride for hours at a time, sun protection is key. This hat from Pistil was perfect, because it protected my face from the sun while allowing airflow to keep cool, (and it’s stylish!) Anthropologie is a great place to look for pants for a safari trip. They have so many cute and comfortable options that you’ll actually continue to wear back at home. I mostly wore boots or tennis shoes out on game drives, and sandals back at the camp. For daytime tops, I brought three different colors of my favorite cotton T-Shirt from MUJI.
