Many guests at Governors’ Camp wear light, comfortable classic khaki or earthtone travel or safari clothes. However, comfort is the rule and anything goes, including muted colour shirts, T-shirts and jeans. All Governors’ Camp properties feature complementary same or next-day laundry service so you can pack less and bring fewer or smaller bags.
A pair of binoculars for use on game drives is highly recommended. For protection against the sun, a brimmed hat, sun tan lotion and sunglasses are also suggested. Either comfortable walking shoes or light-weight hiking boots are appropriate for all safari activities. Be sure to bring a camera, possibly with a zoom lens and enough memory card space as the photo opportunities will be endless. For all clients traveling to Rwanda, in addition to the above you should make sure you have good sturdy walking boots, a light waterproof jacket and some sweaters or fleeces. The lodge is at 11,000 feet above sea level and can get cold at times. Bring supplies of any personal prescription medication you require plus anti-malaria pills. It is also recommended that you bring mosquito repellent. If you plan to bring a digital camera, video camcorder or other rechargable electronics, it is suggested that you confirm that your a/c adapter or battery charger works with 220 volts, and also bring a 3-pin square (UK) electrical adapter plug.
