Pasty White Brits on Safari

While on safari in the Serengetti this last January, I took this picture of two British guys – father and son – riding around in a Land Cruiser with their shirts off. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very hot and it would be nice to ride around with your shirt off. But I have never seen this before in Tanzania and found it quite odd, random and a bit funny.

I guarantee these guys are probably going to wake up the next day with an awful sunburn. They are English, sitting under a cloud for 10 months and now exposing themselves to the punishing sun. Speaking of the sun, it’s not to be messed with in Africa. You can get wicked sunburns even with your clothes. They also might find a slew of bites from mosquitoes which you should avoid while on safari. The more you cover yourself, the better.
