Women's Safari Shirts

Women's safari shirts need to be practical and tough if you are hunting, walking in the bush or travelling. Practically any shirt is OK for around camp or in the safari vehicle, though long sleeves, insect repellent fabric and muted colours are recommended.

Choosing A Good Women's Safari Shirt

These safari shirt tips are for hunting and walking in the African bush. If you are only intending to game-view from a vehicle, your choice of safari shirt style is not so important.

  • 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 walking.
  • 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.
