What to Wear on Safari
Safari clothing should be comfortable and casual—suffice it to say, any fine jewellery should be left at home. And while it’s not actually necessary to dress like an old safari hand, you won’t feel out of place if you do since that’s the everyday attire of the locals—i.e., the present-day “old safari hands” whose great-grandparents moved to Africa from England and points beyond. Plus, there are valid reasons to do so.
Wearing white increases your visibility to wildlife, while bright colours, particularly red, can frighten animals. (It is said that lions fear red because it is the colour worn by the Maasai, who hunt lions as a part of their coming of age rituals.)
