What should I pack?
We’ll provide you with a list of packing suggestions prior to your departure to Zimbabwe. Important items to remember include trekking shoes, trekking trousers and earthy coloured clothes for safari.
You may also want to bring some bring pencils for the local school at Wildtracks safari.
What's the luggage allowance?
We recommend limiting yourself to one large suitcase or backpack and one small day bag. Your international airline will have their own luggage restrictions, so please check these with them.
Can I bring a suitcase or do I need a backpack?
It’s up to you whether you bring a suitcase or a backpack, please bring whichever you feel more comfortable with. We recommend soft-sided bags as these are easier to pack into the transfer vehicles.
What plugs are used, do I need to bring a travel adaptor?
The plug sockets in Zimbabwe vary between standard Euro plugs (type C), British style plugs (type G) and 3 round prong plugs (type D). In the remote safari camps, the electricity will be very limited due to the use of a generator, so you may be able to charge an electrical device, but you won’t be able to use a hairdryer. The standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
In Botswana, the sockets are usually either type D or type G. The standard voltage is also 220 V and the standard frequency is 50Hz. Some camps may have adaptors, but to be on the safe side, we recommend bringing your own.
