Darker colours are best for spotting animals. You’ll definitely need protection from the sun so long sleeves are a good idea. You’ll definitely be covered in red clay dust by the end so nothing too nice!

We were over in July. The weather was good. Not too warm. They also start early so its much cooler.

I would not really recommend taking such young children on a safari in this area, especially a 5.5 month old - the roads are incredibly bumpy and dusty it would be stressful for you and them.
