There's a lot of misinformation circling the internet about what to wear/what not to wear to Africa. People say to pack light, muted colours -- basically, safari gear. You only need to bring a few outfits like that for the days you actually do the safaris and, in addition, some more conservative gear for the Coastal areas. However, for the main part, just bring your normal wardrobe and dress as you would at home. The food is amazing, yet the cooks are flexible and always up for suggestions, so if you've got a craving, ask your cook! Definitely bring minimum 500USD for the Vic Fall's portion of the trip, as you'll want to do the optional activities. Try to get out and about at night, potentially visiting a few bars (even if you're not into the bar scene), as you'll find locals are most natural and inclined to be honest in this setting. And then, as for the rest, really don't sweat it - hakuna matata, or so the saying goes. Your crew have got it sorted. Awesome, AWESOME trip!
