Safari Wicking & QuickDry Gift Ideas For Her

Our fast-wicking fabric draws perspiration away from skin and promotes quick evaporation for maximum dryness and comfort. In practical terms the speed at which a garment dries on the washing line is a pretty good indicator of how quickly it will wick moisture away from the skin, through the fabric and into the atmosphere. Clothing which uses fast-wicking fabrics are therefore ideal as quick-drying travel clothes.

Safari Shirts Read our Safari Shirts Packing Advice

  • It is important that you pack safari-suitable shirts for your children on safari which also offer them maximum protection from the elements and biting insects.
  • Pack children's safari shirts in neutral, natural tones such as shades of khaki, brown, and green.
  • We recommend long-sleeved safari shirts for children with roll-up sleeve tabs over short-sleeved shirts. These enable boys and girls to roll their sleeves up and down to stay cool, keep warm, or to avoid sunburn on their arms. It also increases protection from biting insects when sleeves are rolled down, which is further increased when the fabric is treated with insect protection.
  • Kids' safari shirts with a collar also give your kids added protection from sunburn - and again from biting insects.
  • Look for children's safari shirts which have the following key characteristics: the ability to wick moisture to keep them cool, high level of sun protection (SPF50+ is best), and an insect protection fabric finish to assist in preventing being bitten by flying and biting insects.
  • Pack more children's safari shirts made from man-made fibres (polyamide) than natural fibres (such as cotton). Man-made fibres are better at wicking moisture from the skin - and it is this movement of moisture which will keep them cool.

Safari Dresses & Skorts Read our Safari Dresses & Skorts Packing Advice

  • Pack a women's safari dress and a pair of women's safari skorts to add variety to your wardrobe.
  • Ensure that you select women's safari dresses and skorts which are made in safari-suitable colours.
  • A women's safari dress can also be very versatile when worn with tights, as a longer shirt, or tucked into your safari trousers.
  • Women's safari skorts - which are a combination of shorts and a skirt, with the shorts inside the skorts - are great for safaris in 4x4s as you are able to climb on to and off of the game drive vehicle without worrying about your underwear showing.
  • While, by their design, both safari dresses and safari skorts do allow for a good flow of air around the body to keep you cool, it is still worth looking for styles made in technical fabrics simply as they are usually lighter, easier to pack, and perform better in the heat.

Pack any combination of women's safari dresses & skorts to get the following totals:
Up to 4-day safari: x 1; Up to 8-day safari: x 2; Up to 12-day safari: x 3
