Packing List


Clothing

It is unnecessary to pack excessive clothing because laundry services are provided daily. Three changes of clothes are perfectly adequate for any length of stay.


Our suggested list of clothing:

  • Four shirts—two long-sleeved and two short-sleeved (olive green or dark khaki)

  • Two long trousers

  • Two walking shorts

  • Light-weight hunting jacket

  • Light to medium jacket

  • Light raincoat

  • Four sets of underwear

  • Sweater or Sweatshirt

  • “Boonie” hat or other such wide-brimmed hat

  • Six pairs medium socks

  • Two pairs walking shoes

  • One pair of lodge slippers

  • One pair of gloves

Note: If you are prone to sore feet, heavier socks and a pair of sturdier hunting boots are advisable. Whatever your choice, shoe or boot, the soles should be made of rubber without lugs or cleats so that you can move quietly while stalking and tracking game.  Dark-colored boots/shoes are recommended, NOT WHITE!
