Pack this Safari Fleece Gilet if you are travelling to Africa during the African summer (September to April), unless you are going to very hot areas, or safari areas that are at a high elevation. Please also always pack either our Rufiji 'MaraTech' or 'Classic' Long Sleeve Shirts along with this safari fleece gilet to ensure that you are warm enough. You will need a fleece for the majority of safaris. Not convinced? Please read the quote below, or contact us. "My husband did not procure one of your safari fleeces before we went and alluded to the fact whilst shivering on the back of a land rover on an early morning game drive that obviously you knew what you were talking about." R. Kneller, on safari in Botswana in October - one of the hottest times of the year in the Okavango Delta region!
