Kenya and Tanzania Safari Recommended Gear List

This gear list highlights the important clothing and accessories recommended for a safari, along with a few other items.


Although both Kenya and Tanzania are near the equator (it runs through Kenya), the local climate and altitude can vary widely. Many of the non-coastal regions are over 5,000 feet above sea level and the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater is over 8,000 feet above sea level. This means that evening and morning temperatures can be low, and at Ngorongoro, can be below zero!

Day wear

Evening wear

A lightweight packable rain jacket/coat with hood can be useful in the event of rain in the day or evening. Umbrellas are usually provided at the lodges.
