One of the most common questions we get asked by guests is what to pack for safari. We will give you all the advice you need — and for New York guests, even provide a personal shopping service prior to your departure.
Please look for our advice in the Frequently Asked Questions section of this website; there is nothing more important than having the right attire to keep you safe and comfortable in the wilderness. But at ROAR AFRICA, we add a little flair. We’re not the usual safari company. We care about the detail that makes you feel great in the bush. To this end, ROAR AFRICA’s founder and CEO, Deborah Calmeyer, has spent years sourcing stylish Africa-inspired products that work on safari, from Penelope Chilvers boots, to jewelry produced by Zimbabwean designer, Patrick Mavros. Explore the links below, benefitting from discounts we have negotiated for ROAR AFRICA guests.
