Important Information

Comfortable boots or hiking shoes and a wide-brimmed hat, are of primary importance. Dull or khaki coloured, safari-type clothing is best for the bush. Avoid clothing, which creates noise when walking. A good pair of binoculars and a warm bush jacket for the night complete a short list of essential gear. Camouflage hunting clothing is preferred.
