At Long Grass, we believe that “an informed traveler is a happy traveler”.
To that end, we offer you planning tools, recommendations, and safari-proven, quality products to simplify your trip preparation. Please remember that each safari is unique. We can only provide broad guidelines we have compiled from travel experts, safari aficionados, our customer’s feedback, and our own experiences. We strongly recommend you confirm specifics with your booking agent.
Whether you are preparing for your first journey to Africa or your twentieth, travel in Africa is exciting. The second largest continent provides diverse adventures that will have a meaningful influence on your life.
Proper planning and preparation is the key to making your trip comfortable, enjoyable and help eliminate common safari-traveler pitfalls. Our Safari Planning Timeline highlights critical lead times designed to help make sure you will not be scrambling with important time sensitive tasks at the last minute like travel medicine or shots.
If you look in the menu to the left hand side of your screen, you will find information about some of the more traveled countries. We have included pertinent travel information for some of the more popular safari destinations. Each country has a wide range of terrain, elevation and temperature variance. Please be sure to drop us an email if you find something has changed. We certainly appreciate your help in keeping this updated for all.
While packing is a fun part of the trip it is also serious and due to the nature of safari there are some items that are essential to have with you. Under Packing Guidelines you will find suggestions and recommendations on clothing, gear, and accessories that we have found to be most valuable and sometimes overlooked.
We are always happy to hear from you. We welcome both your questions before you go and the stories of your adventures when you return.
Send us stories and pictures of your trip.
