The Place The Outfit – Safari in Tanzania

Safari Tanzania, where I’ve been, what I wore and what my advice is after taking the trip!

I want to start sharing with you from my travels my fashion & travel experiences, therefore I am starting this series called “The Place, The Outfit”. I believe I want to share more than my Insta posts and videos, but also other photos that I don’t want to just keep in my camera 🙂

THE PLACE

Serengeti Park, Tanzania

This is probably one of the most beautiful place I have ever been to. Partly because it kind of looks so unreal, so unique, that for the first day I couldn’t even believe I was there, someone had to pinch me! We went on for a three day safari, which meant sitting in the car for about 10 hours a day, spotting animals, and oh how an adventure it was! We saw about 40 lions, a lot of them really close to us, like 1 metre away, thousands of zebras, wilderbeest crossing in front of our jeeps, wild dogs, hienas, cheetahs!

Camping in the Park

We camped for two nights there. It was seriously one of the wildest experiences in my life! When I say that, it’s because our tents were exactly in the middle of the wildlife, with lions roaring at night (I had no idea those noises were the roars of lions, we just found out in the morning), and hienas scaring us at the bathroom door! But it was an unforgettable and epic experience.

The first two days were spent in the Serengeti Park, then in the Ngorongoro Crater. It is definitely a bucketlist experience, doing a safari in Tanzania.

How to Dress for a Safari Tanzania

Going Light for a Safari

Since I can’t carry all my wardrobe with me all around the world, I had to choose a couple of outfits for my trip in Tanzania and for the safari.I went with a cotton white dress from Zara, which btw, it’s super comfortable, and my JORD watch along with my Meli Melo black sunglasses and pink espadriles. When I thought about how to dress for a safari, I knew I had to wear lighter clothes and be ready for the camera ( I went for a white and yellow dress which goes with the deep orange shades everywhere), as well as feel really confortable for a safari in Tanzania.

In case you are sleeping in tents:
