These guidelines will give you a sense of safari life, but are not intended to replace the safety orientation you will receive upon arrival. Each safari, geographic location, camp or lodge, game drive or bush walk will have its own specific safety requirements. Although attacks by wild animals or accidents while on safari are rare, no one can guarantee that such incidents will not occur.
Safari essentials include a hat, binoculars, sunscreen, flashlight and your bandanas. The worst part of safari life (depending on location and season) is the dust and the heat. So the most obvious uses for bandanas are to keep your neck warm on frigid morning drives, to protect you from the midday sun and dust, and to become the perfect accessory on bad hair days.
