If you are going on safari, you will need a fleece for open game drive vehicles and the chill of early mornings and late evenings in Africa. Lightweight and warm, this fleece was made for travel.
Lightweight and comfortable, this fleece is easily packed for invaluable warmth when the weather changes on safari and outdoors. Don't get caught unprepared and keep your fleece close at hand for uninterrupted adventure. In polyester fleece material, this fleece is quick-drying and low-maintenance, so you can keep housekeeping to the minimum on safari and all outdoor activities.
With a full-length zip running down the front of the fleece, it can be worn open as a warm light layer or zipped up to keep you extra warm when it starts to get cold. It also has a draw-cord hem for you to seal in the warmth.
You may be asking: “A fleece on safari?” Trust us, on the back of an open Land Rover at six in the morning or eight in the evening, it does get cold! Much of Africa is also over 1000 metres above sea level (the Masai Mara, for example, is at 1,500 metres - the height of many ski resorts in Europe) and this contributes to the morning and evening chill. Please do not be fooled by hot midday temperatures - the hotter it is at midday, the earlier you go on safari. The simple fact is you will be very cold without a safari fleece, as the quote below confirms.
You will need a fleece for the majority of safaris. Not convinced? Please read the quote below, or contact us:
"My husband did not procure one of your safari fleeces before we went and alluded to the fact whilst shivering on the back of a Land Rover on an early morning game drive that obviously you knew what you were talking about." R. Kneller, on safari in Botswana in October - one of the hottest times of the year in the Okavango Delta region!

Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
⊙ With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments.
STEP 1: ⊙ You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and your own collared long sleeve shirt which is a comfortable fit. ⊙ Tip: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording.
STEP 2: Place your shirt flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ Full Bust/Chest - Across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit and multiply by two to get the full chest/bust measurement; ⊙ Centre Back Length - From the nape of the neck on the back of shirt to the bottom hem; ⊙ Sleeve Overarm - From the collar right down to the end of the cuff.
STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements. Chest/bust is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
