Safari Shirts

Page Updated: Jan 2024

The choice of the right safari shirts for an African hunt is quite important as they, along with your safari pants, are what you will wear every day of your hunt. You will need to think about durability, comfort and the other features you might find useful like pockets, cartridge loops and shooting shoulder pads.

Choosing A Good Safari Shirt

  • Get the size and fit right so the shirt is comfortable for many hours of wear.
  • Choose a shirt made of natural or hi-tech fabric that will wick moisture away and will be quiet when wearing it while stalking.
  • You might want additional cooling features like vents and mesh.
  • Long sleeves with button loops for rolling them up are preferable - rolled down for warmth, protection against sunburn and insect bites, rolled up when hot.
  • Pockets - better to have button closure rather than velcro which can be noisy.
  • Other optional features - cartridge loops, shoulder padding for shooting.
  • Khaki, green, brown colours rather than white or any bright colour.
  • Insect repellent Permethrin-impregnated fabric will generally repel ticks and other insects but does not work on tsetse flies.
