Safari Tips

Safari Tips

 

What to bring


 Binoculars, cameras, torch, insect repellent, sunglasses, sunscreen, cosmetics and medications.

What to wear


 

In summer, lightweight, light-coloured cotton is preferable. Garments of neutral colours that blend with the bush and forest are advisable for walking safaris and game viewing. Bring a lightweight jacket and/or jersey for any unexpected change of weather or rain.

In winter, wear trousers, long-sleeved shirts or blouses and jerseys. From May to August temperatures can drop, especially on the morning and evening drives, so warm jerseys and jackets are vital.

Comfortable, close walking shoes or training shoes are a must in all season. Attention must be given to protection from the sun. Bring a sunhat, good sunscreen, sun lotion and a pair of polarized sunglasses. Wide brimmed hats are preferable to caps.

Money


South Africa uses the South African Rand as currency, the notes of which features Africa’s Big Five animals. Travelers’ cheques and foreign currency may be exchanged at Banks, Bureaux de Change and authorized hotels which you find in every town.

The US dollar, Euro and British Pound are the most easily convertible currencies.

Automatic teller machines accept the foreign visa cards and are found in most towns outside the Kruger National Park. Within the park however, the only bank is located at the Skukuza Camp. It is advisable that you inform you guide before leaving the hotel should you require to exchange any currency.

Cultural sites and community art and craft outlets usually only accept South African Rand.

  • Avoid walking alone at night

Accommodation


Crowned Eagle Tours can only book accommodation on request or when purchasing packages. Accommodation in the towns of Hazyview just inside the Kruger National Park and beyond have a range of accommodation to suit every taste from camping sites, game lodges, hotels and guesthouses.

 

Communication


Cellular phone coverage is provided by five mobile network operators. Sim cards are readily available in most supermarkets, convenience stores, petrol stations and other stores. Unfortunately, most areas within the Kruger National Park do not have cellphone network coverage.

All Kruger camps have network coverage, but this only extends up to 2kms beyond the camp. Outside of the Kruger Park, network coverage throughout South Africa is very good on most networks.

South African Mobile networks offer various services to their subscribers, including fast 3 and 4G internet access, fax and international roaming within most of Southern Africa and beyond. It is important to seek advice about network services thus ensuring your needs are met.

 

Malaria


 

Malaria is common in this area, particularly during and immediately following the rainy season. As the strains of malaria and the drugs used to combat them, frequently change, and as certain strains can become resistant, it is best to seek medical advice before your departure and take any medication prescribed. Good advice and the necessary medication can often be had at any retail Pharmacy throughout South Africa.

Shopping


 

All tourist routes feature shopping centres containing restaurants and supermarkets enabling one to purchase all basic commodities. The Kruger National Park has gifts shops located in every camp. Crowned Eagle Safari Guides make an effort to allocate time affording clients the opportunity to purchase curios and other nick knacks. On our Panorama route, there are many arts and crafts shops at every stop offering an ever increasing range of local art and crafts.
