- In October it is very very hot so the lightest possible clothes. And the fewest. The camping is basic (not simple as advertised) and it is quite hard and very dirty. Take as few clothes as possible. Take sunscreen, a widebrimmed hat,loose clothes, a head torch as well as a strong torch to be able to see inside the tent, a nailbrush to try to get your feet clean (an impossible task). Be prepared to get dusty, dirty and hot but the payoff is being inside the Reserves and having longer to spend on game drives. Buy lots of water, and other drinks when you leave Livingstone. The camp boys can keep it cold for you. Get a universal charger with cigarette lighter attachment as no charging facilities anyway of course. You need to be fairly agile to climb in and out of the truck two or three times a day.
