Women's safari dresses and safari skirts are great for travel, sight-seeing or wearing around camp...but definitely not so good for bush walking or hunting.
"It is at these moments you realise the blessings of a good thick skirt. Save for a good many bruises here was I with the fullness of my skirt tucked under me, sitting on nine ebony spikes some twelve inches long, in comparative comfort, howling lustily to be hauled out." Mary Kingsley
Thankfully women's safari fashion has dramatically changed since Mary Kingsley explored Africa in 1895.
