    Default clothing color in Zim

    I am making final prep for Zim in August. I was wondering what foliage color is like in the Hwange area in August. Should I buy dark tan/light brown, , or dark green.

    Go with Olive and dark green and you will not be out of place...

    Black or a dark grey is an option...

    From what i am told tans are to lite.

    I have worn tan, brown, olive, black, green. Buzz Charlton wears blue shirts. No telling what your tracker will wear. Any of the "standard" safari colors will be fine.

    Good luck and have fun chasing buffalo and sable.

    MIKE70560 has it about right buf and sable will be the primary target. Other possibles are hyena, leopard, bushbuck, reedbuck, ele, and just about anything the PH says is of good trophy quality.

    I will be hunting with rifle.

    Clothing color other than white is less important than most think..movement, sound and getting the wind in your favor is the key to success..

    In Tanzania however I would wear tan as olive attracts Tetsi's...

    Mostly I wear Khaki shirts and Wranglers, gaitors and either Tennis shoes or Roper brand shoes, as they are the ultimate in comfort. In RSA and in the mountains I wear my elk hunting boots, any good boot will do if its broke in.
