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.
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.
These suggestions for women's safari shirts include some very suitable for hard core African hunting or bush-bashing, some for a more restful life in camp and others for general travel and sight-seeing. Most come in more colours other than shown.
