        Hi, we are coming on safari in a couple of weeks and just thinking about packing! What sort of clothing do you recommend in the hotel, do you need to be covered up all the time to stop getting bitten or is it only at certain times you need long trousers and tops? It is our first safari so not sure what to expect. Thank you.
