Because of the wide temperature swings we recommend dressing in layers so that you can quickly add or shed layers depending on temperature change. For hunting during the day we recommend wearing comfortable camouflage hunting clothes and good quality waterproof hunting boots since it is common to walk for several hours around the bush. Warm clothing is essential for night hunts as the temperatures can drop significantly after the sun goes down. Gaiters are a must because of the ever present “rosetas” and all the other types of stickers, briars, thorns that seem to be present everywhere in the bush. Although it doesn’t rain much, a light set of rain gear is always a good to have along.
