What to Pack for South Africa

Anne Christine Persson, Monday 13 November 2017

So what to pack for South Africa? Yes, my next trip will be to the great country of South Africa. I love the country. The variety of the stunning nature makes it a must-see destination. I will be going on safari and hitting both Cape Town and Johannesburg, so will have to pack strategically. Here are a few things that I will be packing for my very exciting trip.

What to pack for South Africa 2

Rabens Saloner Aysha Kimono

Perfect to cover up your skin during the safari nights to avoid mosquito bites and perfect for a trip to Camps Bay in Cape Town


Communitie Cooked Surfer Hat

I always cover my face when exposed to the sun and this hat will do the trick


ATP Atelier Rosa Black Vacchetta

Great sandals for urban exploration in Johannesburg or Cape Town


Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee

A well-written book by the South African author J.M. Coetzee highlighting some of the issues of the country and it is definitely worth a re-read

Ahlem Eyewear St. Martin

Ideal size sunglasses for the scorching African sun


What to pack for South Africa

Nuori Vital Body Balm

The body balm from the Danish organic skincare brand Nuori is a favourite of mine


Vichy Soleil Anti-Sand Milk SPF 50+

Sunscreen and sandy beaches are the worst combo, but this sunscreen is supposed to be extra easy for removing any sand from your body


Excellent Pro OBH Nordica

I have thick hair and lots of it, so I need a pro tool for the hair. This hairdryer is lighter and great for travelling, and the high power shortens the drying time. Go, just go


Karmameju Body Scrub More 03

One of my favourite scrubs comes in a smaller travel size


Aesop Hwyl Eau de Parfum

New perfume from Aesop with lots of inspiration from nature and ideal for a splash or two on my body before a sundowner


La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light

I always go for SPF 50+. This is one of my favourites, as it is light, non-sticky and comes in a small convenient size


ghd Platinum Styler

My hair gets frizzy, especially if it is in warmer, humid climates. This is one of my best friends, a lifesaver to be honest. I always pack it no matter where I go
