Safari Protect Yourself Gift Ideas For Her

It’s a wild ol’ world and you should protect yourself from the elements of it while travelling. Biting insects, the sun, night-time animals, blisters, and dodgy water are all factors when on adventure travels. Here are the products to assist with protection from all of these.

Safari Hats Read our Safari Hats Packing Advice

  • For the best protection from the strength of the midday sun in Africa - for your neck and face - pack a wide-brimmed women's safari hat.
  • With mean high temperatures reaching mid-20 to mid-30 degrees Celsius on most safaris and with safari areas in Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, and Zambia high above sea level, the effects of the sun will be pronounced and the risk of being burnt by the sun will be high. A wide-brimmed women's safari hat is literally your first line of defence against sunburn.
  • Wide-brimmed women's safari hats also provide shelter when it rains. We find that a wide-brimmed safari hat definitely makes it more comfortable when you are caught out on a walk or game drive by a sudden thunderstorm or tropical shower, as at least your face remains dry and fewer drops go into your eyes.
  • Colour is key when choosing a women's safari hat - with neutral shades such as khaki, green, or brown the best. Your safari hat will often be the most conspicuous part of you while viewing wildlife on a walking safari.
  • Pack a women's safari hat which suits your safari style. Fortunately, there are more styles available for women today which range from leather hats to classically-styled indie and panama-shaped hats.
  • Modern wide-brimmed women's safari hats are also conveniently packable and are easy manipulate back into shape. A note though: not all hats are packable and should be carried with your carry-on luggage - and, even when a hat is packable, never crush your safari hat under a hard object - such as shoes or binoculars - when packing.

    Number of wide-brimmed women's safari hats to pack for your safari:
    1 x wide-brimmed safari hat per person.
    *Pack a warm and cosy safari beanie for cold mornings and the African winter too.

Safari Sunglasses Read our Safari Sunglasses Packing Advice

  • Pack high quality sunglasses for your safari which have very good lenses to avoid any damage to your eyes from the hard rays of the African sun.
  • The majority of safari activities take place early in the morning and late in the afternoon. This means that you may be staring into a rising or setting sun during your safari, which makes packing good safari sunglasses even more important.
  • At midday the light may be quite harsh too depending on which areas you visit and the terrain. As an example in areas of Botswana there are large salt pans and the sand is bright-white which reflects the sun's rays and may be uncomfortable for your eyes.

Number of safari sunglasses to pack for your safari:
1 x pair of high quality sunglasses per person.
