Littleton, CO (PressExposure) November 18, 2009 -- The holiday shopping season is just around the corner and weâre continuing to see consumer trends shift towards practicality and experiences vs. traditional luxury goods. For Americans planning for (or dreaming about!) a trip to Africa in 2010, stylish yet practical safari gear may be just the perfect holiday gift. Rothschild Safaris (http://www.rothschildsafaris.com/), a boutique safari operator creating unique and custom journeys to Africa, today unveils their perfect safari gear gift guide for those searching for an ideal gift for travel companions and avid travelers.
âPacking to head out into the bush for two weeks can be a bit overwhelming for those who have never been to Africa. Add to that the requirement that travelers are restricted to anywhere from 26 to 44 pounds preferably packed in soft-sided duffle bags that are carry-on size, and we regularly have some very confused travelers!â explains Leora Rothschild, founder of Rothschild Safaris. âOur safari gear packing guide includes a complete packing list containing pictures of recommended clothes and equipment. It has taken me nearly 200 safaris to perfect this African safari packing strategy and now I want to share what I have learned with my clients.â
An inexpensive watch is a helpful tool as most camps and lodges in Africa do not have clocks (or sometimes even electricity) in the room. Although, wake up calls are offered, a second late for a game drive equals a second away from witness a pride of lion cubs. Plastic or rubber running watches work great and are lightweight. Another great packing tip is to pack sticky yoga socks which are much more portable than a big mat and provide a great way to stretch out after a long day in a safari vehicle. Other great packing tips on Leora Rothschildâs safari gear packing guide include soft sided duffle bags, silk long underwear and pajamas for layering, and Tilley hats.
