What to bring

Luggage is strictly limited to 20kgs per person, including hand luggage, carried in soft bags on the light aircraft into the Delta. Additional bags can be stored, by arrangement, at African Horseback Safaris’ office in Maun.

We recommend that you bring:
  • A light-weight riding hat
  • A shade hat with strap
  • Two pairs of light-weight riding shoes
  • Sunglasses on string, riding gloves and bandana
  • Bush colour riding clothes (not white):
  • Jodhpurs or long trousers and chaps (2 pairs)
  • Long sleeved cotton shirts
  • Jersey, fleece or multi- pocketed waistcoat
  • Light weight waterproof windbreaker jacket
  • 4 x sets of socks and underwear (we recommend unpadded cycling shorts for men)
  • Shorts, T shirts, sarong, swimwear and sandals
  • Sun block, lip salve, insect repellent
  • Torch and binoculars
  • Waterproof camera
All clothing should be neutral coloured to blend in with the bush (shades of khaki, brown, beige or green) and light weight cottons are advisable. Please take into consideration the time of year when you are travelling before making your final packing decisions. For further information, please see ‘Best time to visit’ which provides more information about seasonal changes and temperatures. Many guests choose to wear their riding clothes and boots and carry wash bags in their hand luggage, in case bags are delayed or go astray on international flights.

Macatoo provides a complimentary laundry service, although for hygiene reasons we do not wash underwear. Washing powder is provided in tents for this purpose. Towels and other amenities are provided.

A basic first aid kit is available in camp but please make sure to bring any prescription medication with you. Please consult your doctor regarding anti-malarial advice and inoculations.
