What To Pack

Phumelelo Lodge is located in a malaria free area so there is no need to worry about malaria precautions. Bring comfortable, light clothing,  swimsuits and swimming towels in the summer and warm clothes for the winter.

The wind-chill factor on the early morning and late afternoon game drives can make it chilly in winter and even though we provide blankets we recommend a thick fleece jacket, beanie and scarf. Comfortable walking shoes, binoculars, cameras, animal/bird books, sun hats and plenty of sunscreen are also advised.
