What do we pack?

Bloomberg Businessweek (North America) - - Etc -

Lux­ury sa­fari lodges of­ten have ameni­ties handy—pon­chos for cooler early-morn­ing drives, binoc­u­lars, hats, mos­quito spray— so pack light. That’s im­por­tant, be­cause bush planes have strict weight re­stric­tions. And don’t ig­nore the lodge’s re­quest to bring soft lug­gage: Smaller planes need ev­ery inch of avail­able space in the cargo hold, and d soft lug­gage is eas­ier to squeeze in. You might think dust-colored sa­fari cloth­ing iss bland, but bright and dark col­ors at­tract pests such as tsetse flies and scare off wildlife. Plus, neu­tral tones will keep you cool in the hot sun. Fi­nally, don’t for­get smaller bills for tip­ping your guides.
