If you travel on one of IE's Kenya and Tanzania safaris during April or May, bring an extra pair of shoes for inside your tent at our mobile tented camp. Flip-flops are perfect! Shoes can get muddy in East Africa's green season and a pair of shoes for inside help keep mud out of your tent. So, you might be asking, why travel on an East Africa safari during the green season if it is muddy? Easy! During the green season, safaris are less expensive AND the parks and reserves are less crowded!

What unexpected items do you pack for safaris? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks to IE Director of Program Development Bill Robison for this great tip!
