Preparing for Safari

what to pack for safari

I am so beyond excited to take off on my next adventure. I am crossing off one bucket list item that has been on my radar since I was a kid… going on an African Safari! My family and I are leaving this week for a two-week vacation to South Africa, where we will be exploring Cape Town, the South African wine country, and then Kruger National Park for Safari.

I have been spending a lot of time preparing for the trip, from what to pack, to the trip itinerary, all the way to how to keep entertained on a 24+ hour long plane journey.

First up, I am detailing exactly what to pack for the trip of a lifetime. I’ll be documenting my entire vacation in a trip diary, so my outfits are of top priority (when are they not?!)

Here is a list of essentials to pack for a wild safari.
