First safari- what to wear? Gifts for locals?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone- I am going on my 1st safari the last wk of May-1st wk of June. I know to have long sleeves and mosquito protection but I was more concerned about what to pack color-wise. Odd question I know but have heard NO white, red or yellow. Something about white mimicking a warning sign from an antelope ; red I suppose stands out.

Also my group will be touring a Masai village one afternoon. is it customary to bring a little thank-you gift? I dont want to be rude. I know neither of these are earth-shattering questions but I like to be prepared. i have checked Fodors and other travel sites but cant find these answers. Thank you for your help.
