Sunscreen: Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF or sun protection factor of between 30 and 50.
Medical kit: Pack a small bag or medical kit to include pain killers, any chronic medications, and insect repellent.
Anti-malarial: The Greater Kruger National Park is situated in a malaria area. Please consult your doctor about prophylaxis before your trip.
Light, cotton clothing in light tones: Choose neutral tones and light fabrics, preferably cotton. These fabrics work best in a hot climate.
Long sleeved shirt and trousers: Pack a couple of long-sleeved shirts and a pair of long trousers for the evenings as the temperature can drop at night. They also keep mosquitoes and other insects at bay.
A lightweight waterproof jacket: The temperatures in the Greater Kruger can vary greatly. It is wise to wear several layers of clothing that you can remove or add as needed.
Shoes: A good pair of durable trainers for walking, and sandals for around the lodge or pool.
A wide brimmed hat: Many first-time visitors to Africa underestimate the sun's strength, even in the late afternoon. Choose a hat with a wide brim to shade your eyes and the back of your neck.
