While on safari with Mbali Mbali in Tanzania, we want all our guests to be comfortable and to ensure this we advise you to pack as lightly as possible, remembering that the charter flights have a maximum baggage allowance of 15kg per person in soft bags. All our lodges have a laundry service so only a few changes of clothes are required.

For everyday use we suggest you pack shorts, T-shirts, lightweight trousers, short & long sleeved shirts, good walking shoes, and casual evening wear for open-air dinners. For the cooler months of June, July and August it is also advisable to bring a light jacket or fleece.

For chimpanzee trekking, or other walking activities, please bring good lightweight boots/shoes as well as a small daypack to carry water and other necessary items. For water activities at Gombe and Mahale don’t forget swimwear, sarongs, and flip flops or sandals.

Shampoo, conditioner and soap are provided in the rooms but please bring other cosmetics and medical items required. Cameras and binoculars are a must.

Flash photography is not permitted on chimpanzee treks and in close proximity of wildlife. Last but not least don’t forget to bring sunscreen, lip balm, insect repellent, sunglasses, and a wide brimmed hat.
