The sun in Africa will beat down on your head all day and "ball caps" are not necessarily the best solution for protection. The traditional Pith Helmet can be found in antique shops and a vintage one will have much more character than the new versions.

Tilley make a lightweight and practical range of hats and the new "Camo" version is good and sure to be a welcomed gift for your tracker on departure or put a few in your bag and you will befriend all the staff on arrival for sure!
For those wanting something a little more special John & John Morris Jr. of The Rocky Mountain Hat Co. make a really great product and have a superb eye for style and fit. It is a real pleasure to do business with the Morris' as I found out when ordering the hat above.
