One safari-themed costume is a safari guide; this requires a pair of khaki shorts, a brown or khaki vest, a white T-shirt, a wide-brimmed hat, hiking boots and a pair of binoculars or sunglasses. To enhance the look, the wearer can carry around stuffed animals that might be seen on a safari, such as a zebra or giraffe.
Another safari-themed costume idea is to dress like one of the animals from a safari, such as a lion. A yellow sweatsuit provides the foundation for a lion costume. Thin strips of tan and yellow felt are sewn together to create the mane. Strips of construction paper can also be glued together to quickly make a mane. The lion's tail is easily made by sewing felt or gluing construction paper together and attaching it to the wearer's pants using fishing line.
