It is essential to wear cooler clothing like cotton clothing if you are going to the Kruger National Park during the summer, because it seriously gets hot, however do not forget that it does sometimes rain in the area so a water proof jacket will be essential to have. At night it might also be cooler so it will be wise to bring along some long sleeve trousers/shirts if you know that you get cold easily. Do note that you should wear comfortable shoes like takkies (sneakers) or boots.
