We answer some of the most frequently asked questions we get from clients when planning their African hunting safari.

Laundry service is provided every day, so there is no need to over pack.
If you do not have camouflage clothing, dark green, khaki, brown, tan or any dull color will be fine.
If you chose to bring, we recommend Avon “Skin So Soft”, Unscented.
Nearly all modern electronics are now dual-voltage, so there may be no need for a converter. You can verify this by finding the raised-letter specs on the charger (sometimes printed on a label); it’ll say something like: Input: 110v-240v. If you product has this marking all you will need is an adapter, which can be purchased at most electronic stores like Best Buy and Radio Shack. South Africa – Electrical Specifications: South Africa 220 / 230V 50 Hz M
Service is available at most of the lodges. However, please keep in mind you are in the bush and service is limited. Verizon seems to be the best carrier in Africa and some clients have chosen to purchase disposable phones with plans at the airport or sim cards.
If you fancy specialty or top shelf liquor we would suggest that you purchase it at the “Duty Free” shop when departing for Africa. Specialty alcohol can be hard to find and if you do find it, it can be very costly.
Depending on the size of your group, we can accommodate you in one of our comfortable safari vehicles, or, in a rented luxury mini bus.
Make copies of all paperwork and take with you in your carry on. We recommend you make copies of your passport and any credit cards that you are traveling with; if you lose one it will be easier for you to cancel / replace if you have all the information. Please do not hesitate to contact your Avula Safaris representative if you have any questions or concerns.
One of our representatives will be in touch and will be happy to answer all of your questions.
