Nothing beats having a relaxing shower or bath and then putting on a crisp, clean shirt after a long day in the sun on safari.
While we recommend safari clothing in neutral colours and technical fabrics during the day on safari, there is a lot more freedom around what to wear at the lodge in the evenings. If you are going on safari and don’t know what to wear at the end of the day, here are some top tips on safari eveningwear.
1. The great white shirt
At the end of a hot and dusty day exploring the African bush, few things are as satisfying as having a bath or shower and slipping into a crisp white shirt. Get ‘Out of Africa’ style with our range of white shirts or shop our travel and outdoor range here.
2. Timeless safari style in fashionable safari clothes
Safari styling is always in vogue. The Mara&Meru™ Laced Tank and the Mara&Meru™ Lace-Up Safari Dress are the perfect way to channel safari elegance at dinner on safari – or pair the Rufiji™ Safari Shirt Dress with a pair of tights to convert your game drive favourite into a sophisticated evening outfit.
3. When the sun goes down, grab a fleece, safari jacket, and knitwear
It can get quite chilly during the evenings on safari, which is why we recommend always taking a warmer layer on safari. Take your fleece, jacket, and beanie or scarf along with you to dinner and stay snug and warm as you tell safari stories next to the fire. Depending on the temperature, you may opt for trousers or slacks over bare legs during the evening.
4. If suitcase space is limited, your safari clothing is made for style
With the strict luggage limitations on safari, suitcase space comes often comes at a premium. Our Rufiji™ and Mara&Meru™ range of men’s and women’s safari clothing is designed to be practical when you are out and about without compromising on style. Our shirts have a stylish cut and fit and look just the part during the evening on safari. Shop men’s and women’s safari clothing.
5. Tuck these essentials in your satchel at night
We recommend packing a lightweight, compact torch for evenings on safari. Keep an eye out for insects, reptiles, and wildlife which may have wondered into camp – and do some animal-spotting from the safety of the lodge. It is also a good idea to take your insect repellent with you to avoid mosquito bites when they are most active in the evenings.
