Tourists issued with South Africa safari advice

25th Feb 2013

Holidaymakers who are going to South Africa have been urged to use their common sense if going on safari.

Specialist tour operator Africa Travel has published a range of new advice for making the most out of safari trips to places such as the Kruger National Park.

The golden rule is to blend in with the surroundings by dressing in neutral colours as bright patterns can often scare off wildlife and draw unwanted attention from predators.

Tourists have been told to wear light, breathable clothes to deal with scorching daytime temperatures, although bringing layers is also vital for when the temperature plummets at night.

Wearing dark colours on safari in South Africa can attract tsetse flies, which have a painful bite, so people are advised to leave their dark blue or black clothing at home.
