These skorts are ideal for safaris. With the look of a skirt and the functionality of shorts, they are perfect for walking, climbing off and onto Land Rovers, travel, and outdoor activities.
These skorts are a godsend for women travelling to Africa. They are the perfect combination of a flattering safari skirt and the practicality of safari shorts. Made from extremely lightweight, strong fabric, they are ideal for maintaining dignity when climbing on and off Land Rovers, allow you to move freely, and look great on your walking safari or even just to wear around camp. These skorts were made with safaris (and luggage allowances) in mind.
With all of their benefits and features, they are well-suited to the active outdoorswoman. They allow for flexibility and convenience for adventure travel and outdoor hobbies whilst retaining a feminine fit and design that can be enjoyed at the lodge or for daily wear – a great way to diversify your wardrobe and suitcase.
MaraTech™ Ripstop fabric sets itself apart as being cool, lightweight, yet very strong. Its moisture wicking capabilities draw moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable in warmer climates and the built-in SPF50+ offers maximum sun protection. The SilverPlus anti-bacterial technology keeps your skorts fresh between washes. It is also quick-drying and easily releases wrinkles, making it perfect for travel.
The rise of these skorts sit just above the natural waist for a comfortable, stylish fit and mobility for outdoor adventures. The skorts are done up by means of a zip and button which complement the overall look of the garment. They also have two hand pockets and a button-up back pocket for added convenience.

Your Rufiji™ clothing is packaged in a recyclable paper bag. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.
Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Safari sKorts – Further Information:

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 pair of trousers which are 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: Referring to the images above, place your trousers flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Waist - Across the top of the waistband from corner to corner. Note that for women we also include hip which is across the trousers, measured 20cm below the waistband, but parallel to the waistband; ⊙ Front Rise - From the top of the front waistband to the crotch; ⊙ Inside Leg - From the crotch to the bottom of the hem on the trouser leg. STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements.Waist is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.

Hi Steve, I just wanted to say the sKorts, in particular, are great - perfect for Africa because they're lightweight and dry very quickly like the shirt. It is also chic yet practical at the same time, so ideal for ladies in the bush. Thank you so much. I've worn them the whole time.
This is the first time I have bought skorts . They are amazingly lightweight fabric, a great deep khaki colour too. Very comfortable. They do come up small though. Great purchase and now waiting for the stone to comeback into stock.
Good quality sort, comfy ...but the waist these things is crazy small...I normally wear a size 10-12 trousers and am, granted, thick waisted and slim thighed but I had to get a size 18 and even then it is a pull to close the waist....and then the thighs feel more billowy then I'd like but I doubt the safari will be a fashion show....if I find myself with supermodels I am revising the review!
