Women's Safari Scarves

Page Updated: Jan 2024

A large cotton scarf, bandana or neckerchief is very useful to wear for absorbing sweat around your neck and wiping your face. The insect repellent scarves are great for keeping mosquitoes away but do not repel tsetse flies.

A scarf also makes an emergency bandage or sling. Women's safari scarves may also be tied as a head band to keep your hair under control or as a head covering against dust and wind.

A warmer scarf or neck gaiter may be necessary for cold mornings.
