For those taking the title of your post literally, I ran across this while researching Namibia.

There is a Lucky Brand store right across from my dance studio. I am sure I will give Diesel's a try soon.


Here are a couple of my recent articles:

That's great writing, and the photographer did a great job too. Is there a website you write for at all? I read, and

Jill H, If you really want to save, try a second hand store for khakis and other beiges. The ones near me have an abundance of khaki slacks.

There is nothing magical about cargo style pants. Basically, you want pants that are light and dry easily, and are preferably in a neutral color (and preferably not blue). You definitely do not need to spend $50.
Convertible pants are great, since they can zip off to shorts.
I think you would want at least 1 pair full length pants, both for bug and temperature purposes, but if you like capris and already have them, they might work for some of your safari days.
I also bought some cheap stuff online at

Besides Academy and Sports Authority, you might check for a Gander Mountain or Bass Pro Shop. Convertable pants(zip off's) are the way to go. I got several pair of zip off pants at Gander that were cotton and I think $ 29. More of a house type brand. I also took a pair of North Face zip off's. Those were great on the plane. Cool & comfortable + they were made of a more durable fast drying material vs REI, Ex-Officio, etc. Wear them on all my vacation trips now. Worth the money around $ 50 ish. Not sure about temps' in Tanzania during June, but my trip to SA in May it was cold in morning/late afternoon/evening, but shorts weather in middle of day

Love the title to your post! I wore stretch jeans on the plane going over, and have to say that I loved having them to wear a couple times in the evening at camp. It was nice getting out of the khakis. I was surprised at how much I liked my nylon zip off pants. Wore them most of the time while in the bush.
Good luck, and don't bother buying too much that you won't wear again!

Thanks for the responses/opinions. Guess I'll do a little shopping this weekend.
