His top heavy wife Imagine an upside down pear set atop 2 toothpicks wore a khaki vest over a leopard print top. Her hair was styled as large as possible and I am certain many African birds would be jealous of her nest making abilities!
Her makeup was heavily applied showing off her like of bright colors. Her legs were covered in skintight leopard leggings and she had a faux leopard skin purse to match. I pondered how I could take a photo without being spotted. It was simply not possible. Fortunately most safari-goers are more practical in their choice of clothes with quick dry, light weight fabrics from REI being common. Pants zip into shorts, shirts have vents to keep you cool, and large brimmed packable hats provide protection from the sun… all good stuff — but necessary?
The reality is the type of clothes that you choose to wear on your safari is not that big of a deal. Look at the photo of the Masai warriors above… they are wearing bright red robes with leather sandals — and they live there!
We suggest comfortable clothes that are cool, but that can layer to keep you warm in the evenings or on an early morning wildlife viewing drive. Light weight shirts and fleece pullovers are ideal. Zip off pants that turn into shorts… I have worn them myself… pretty convenient when the day starts to heat up.
A good sun hat? Jeans and flannel are not optimal. You can still do this with regular clothing. Regular clothing should dry overnight or at least by second night but there is some merit to having some of the special quick dry clothing - but only if you can get enough use for the costs. Also consider that the soil of Tanz is red and gets into everything.
Especially if you are doing a lot of walking, you do want something durable, but it will never look the same after it has been exposed to Tanzania dirt. If I was going to put money into anything, I put it into a secure pair of ankle trekking boots. I just traveled for a month with 3 outfits, as did Idiot She. She carries gauzy, lineny things that dry overnight.
I carry camping nylon kind of stuff. I typically rinse out a shirt every night - under good conditions they take about hours to dry. I did two the night before we left and actually had a clean shirt to change into at the airport in Amsterdam. We've had good luck with this place that specializes in deeply discounting camping gear It also depends on where you are staying or how long. I found that most clothing, especially socks and underwear do not dry overnight. If you are a location for more than one night, it helps with the drying.
If you stay at lodges, you can get laundry done , but again, usually not for the next day. I had one of their safari shirts, which are long sleeve but roll up as well as a pair of their convertible pants long pants that zip off to make shorts. The shirt has many pockets, has a mesh area under the arms for ventilation, weighs almost nothing, and dries quickly.
The pants are great. I also purchased a similar set from a well known US outdoor type store and they were lousy. Ex Officio also makes undergarments that can be rinsed and dry within 2 hours. OP, I just went this route, looking for light-weight quick-dry travel clothes that I could wear anywhere.
Not much where I live so I resorted to the online Sierra Trading Post, Ex Officio, Columbia i usually do not buy clothes online as they are hard to fit.
I even called Sierra and pleaded my case, they could not have cared less. Bottom line, unless you have ordered clothes online before and are fairly certain they will work for you, I'd try local shops. Mr S was able to find a couple of things, but unfortunately, nothing for women. I haven't been to Mozambique , but have been several times to Namibia and Tanzania plus some colder laces.
They also do excellent mail order. Their clothing ranges are designed for all climates, and with travel in mind. It is ALL made with weight restrictions and ease of washing in mind.
