You should never wear bright colored clothes to a safari. Putting on dull clothes that perfectly camouflage with the landscape is the ideal most pick. The better you dress, the lesser are the chances of animals spotting you.

  1. Be prepared for a no network zone or carry a convenient sim card

Most of the wildlife locations cut off your network and leave you completely unplugged. Make sure to have no calls or work to be scheduled during your safari timeslot. Even if you have a sim that works, there are chances that the signal would not hold up long.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
