Large Holdall As with your trek, you need two bags: one (large) that carries your clothing etc that you won’t need that day. And…
Daysack, 25-35 litres. This second one is for personal use while you’re on safari, so you can keep those items you may need that day (suncream, sunglasses, camera etc) readily to hand.
If you’re on a multi-day walking safari (eg around the Ngorongoro Highlands) then you’ll also need a waterproof rucksack liner and/or a waterproof rucksack cover too. (Remember that plastic bags are banned in Tanzania so you won’t be able to use bin bags/shopping bags.)
If you staying in lodges and permanent tents on your trip, you won’t need to worry about sleeping equipment. If you’re camping, however, then you’ll need to bring a sleeping bag. IF you’re climbing Kili with us too then it makes sense to just bring the one bag, which should be rated to -10C (to keep you warm on Kili). But it you’re only taking a safari with us, a +5C -rated bag should be fine.
Note that, as with Kili, sleeping mattresses are not required – we provide these for you.
– Sweat-wicking T-shirts / vests
– Fleece. It can get remarkably chilly on safari.
– Lightweight walking trousers or shorts.
– Waterproofs. It depends on the season, of course, but usually it doesn’t rain that often on safari. But when it does, the downpour can be very heavy.
– Malaria Tablets
– Sun cream.
