Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is a measure of the amount of the sun's ultraviolet rays that reach your skin. Our MaraTech™ & BUGTech™ fabric both have an UPF of 50+, which is the highest UPF rating available today for clothing. Back that level of protection up by wearing a wide-brimmed hat & accessories such as sunscreens - but only use those which are proven to really work. Staying safe in the sun means many more hours of fun in the sun. Bad sun burns are no fun at all.
Our range of beanies, scarves, and multi-functional head&neck tubular scarves are ideal for wearing and using at home, or on your next adventure.
For your next safari, Africa gets cold in winter and so following on from our advice for safari fleeces and safari jackets, you need to pack garments and accessories which keep you warm. Therefore, woollen safari scarves, safari beanies, and safari gloves should be considered a packing essential over the African winter, and for some mornings through summer safaris too. For more details on when and why Africa gets cold, please view our safari jacket and fleeces advice.
For the African summer, you may not need a safari beanie or scarf as your wide-brimmed safari hat should keep you warm enough but, as they are small and light to pack, it is worth taking one along just in case. Please also take note of the altitude of the area in which you are going on safari. The Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, as an example, is over 2000 meters above sea level on the rim of the crater and so may be cold throughout the year and we would recommend taking warmer layers just in case.
