What to bring on an African Safari


There’s no place quite like Africa, Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris offers hunts on various concessions within South Africa. We have a large selection of concessions because we believe certain species are simply more magnificent in their natural habitats. Instead of removing them from their homeland, we take you to them to ensure the quality of your trophy.

  • Polarized, quality sunglasses. Tinted fashion glasses won't be good enought in the harsh African sunlight
  • Sun hat and Sunscreen
  • Shirts, T-shirts and long-sleeved cotton shirts
  • Shorts / Long trousers / slacks
  • Track suit
  • Underwear and socks
  • Comfortable walking shoes

  • Parka, scarf and gloves for the winter months (May to September)
