Please read the information below before selecting your size to get the best fit & save on returns costs:
⊙ We have shown the Body measurement for the full bust. Body measurements are approximates.
⊙ For the Full Bust Body measurement measure around your body: under your arms and around the fullest part of your bust.
⊙ Fit guide: These shirts are made to be a relaxed fit, with a relaxed waist, but many clients will order one size to wear as a more fitted T-shirt, and another larger size for a looser, more relaxed fit. The fit is made to be more loose than on our Rufiji and Mara&Meru BUGTech and SAFARITech shirts.

⊙ Lightweight, luxurious rayon/spandex material.
⊙ Long-sleeved T-shirt design with a loose fit and natural drape that looks and feels good in Africa and back home.
⊙ Rounded bottom seam and generous length for easy wearing over tights, with safari trousers or shorts, or as a simple choice as part of every outfit.
⊙ Some clients purchase two sizes: one to wear as a more fitted T-shirt and another larger size for a looser fit.
With a soft feel and super comfy drape and design, the Serengeti Long-Sleeved Top is all about easy casual style with a luxury touch. In safari-suitable colours, stock up on your favourite tops for African travels or subtle everyday safari elegance. Long sleeves add an element of versatility to how you choose to wear the sleeves.
There is more than meets the eye when it comes to this great garment. Its silky rayon/spandex fabric gives it an incredibly soft hand feel and elegant drape – a little something special for comfortable travels, daily wear, and ease of motion when you’re exploring the great outdoors.
A long-sleeved shirt is essential for safari and outdoors. Our shirts in technical fabrics are our top recommendation for performance, but the Serengeti Long-Sleeved Top is an investment in simple comfort and casual style no matter where you wear it. The loose fit and medium-length fit is a great match for almost any trousers, shorts, skirts, or skorts.
The short-sleeved Serengeti V-Neck T-Shirt is a favourite with our clients and should come with a ‘one-in-every-colour’ warning. While the short-sleeved tee was put through its paces on the Three Rivers Expedition, the long-sleeved top has been happily safari-tested in the desert dunes of Kgalagadi and out and about on game viewers in Tuli, Botswana. It’s worn very regularly back home too – a great crossover top for safari shoppers.
It is worth noting though that while we have safari and expedition tested this shirt, it is not a high-performance technical shirt, as with our BUGTech range. The fabric we use was selected more for comfort and feel, rather than technical performance.
Just as described, this shirt has a soft feel and nice drape and design. It's something you can quickly put on and feel comfortable. I'd say it fits true to size. Colour is gorgeous, too. Overall, it looks and feels good! The material does not feel cheap or flimsy. Ideal for safari or the plane ride to safari!
⊙ The shirt fabric achieves its luxurious feel by using a micro-fibre construction. When you unpack your Women's Serengeti V-neck Safari T-Shirt for the first time, you may notice marks on the shirt. Please note that these are not permanent stains or marks. When we iron each shirt before packing them, some of the micro-fibres end up in the opposite orientation to the others and then it looks like a stain or mark, when actually it is not. When the shirt is washed and hung up to dry, then the stain or mark disappears.
⊙ MATERIAL: Made from 95% rayon, 5% spandex
