5 Items You Need for Your Next Bush Getaway

Summer is not over yet, and we all know that the Bush can still be hot while we in the other parts of the country are already dusting off our trusty winter coats. If you read our recent post on 5 Reasons to Visit Kuzuko Lodge, you must have already started packing your bags. If you haven’t yet, we’ve got you covered!

Here are BLOSS‘s 5 essential items to pack for a fashionable getaway to the bush:

1. Bathing Suit

If you are going to be hanging out around Kuzuko’s luxurious pool, you’ll have to do it in style. Ditch the boring monochromes and opt for a funky tropical patterned bikini or one-piece.

2. Lipstick

Just because Meryl Streep didn’t wear lipstick in Out of Africa, doesn’t mean you can’t spice up your safari look with a bright lip. We love Alila’s Pretoria Poppie Liquid Matte shade, as well as their 9 Shade Lip Palette.

3. Straightener

GHD’s new Platinum+ Festival Collection Styler is a limited edition straightener that will add some flair to your hairstyle and your suitcase. Everyone knows a GHD is every girl’s best friend. Why not make your best friend the prettiest one around?

4. Camera

Nowadays we don’t really need cameras anymore; it’s just so easy to keep your phone at hand and snap a few photos whenever wherever. We suggest you ditch the phone and all of those pesky notifications popping up constantly, and rather take a funky camera with you. We have our eye on these colourful cameras from Polaroid and Fujifilm.

5. Shoes

Of course, a pair of comfortable shoes is a vital item for your trip to the bush. Whether you plan on walking or just lounging around, make sure you make a statement doing it. We love these Sleek W -diva/red Adidas Originals available here.


Now that you’re inspired, and ready to pack your bags, do you have your accommodation sorted yet? I’m guessing that’s a no. Once again, we here at BLOSS have you covered.

  1. I love this list, and my bag to the farm usually includes all of these except the straightener…I opt for a big hat to hide the bad hair 😉
