A Packing Guide for Fall at Safari Village
As September rolls around, we enter into a new season at our Waypoint Outposts. Even though Arizona doesn’t often get the memo that it’s Autumn, we do see the temperatures descend into quite the enjoyable days and nights around Camp Verde, Arizona.
If you were to average out typical temperatures for our fall months, you might hit low 90s for a high during September, with average lows in the high 60s. October brings highs in the 80s and lows in the 40s. Then, as November approaches, we’re looking at highs in the 70s and lows in the 30s.
With our fire pits and heaters provided, the Fall becomes an enticing season to book your stay. It’s a beautiful blend of pleasant days and crisp, fresh nights. In the spirit of glamping, we want to provide you with our favorite gear to pack along during your Fall booking.
We always recommend layers. This is especially true in our Autumn season. Light jackets, pullover hoodies, and the cozier the better for curling up around our fire pits.
Throw in a few hats if your ears are prone to get cold at night. That way, you can still enjoy all the hammocking and yard games when the sun goes down.
Sandals and tennis shoes will allow you ease during your quick walk to the restroom as well as sturdy shoes for your hikes and adventures.
Overall, know that your days are likely to still allow for shorts and a tee shirt. But evenings may bring a bit of a chill that will warrant a jacket.
With cooler evenings comes the need for a hot cup of coffee in your hand. We recommend bringing hot cocoa with some fun Fall flavors to spice it up－pumpkin spice, cinnamon, etc. And if you want to get fancy, don’t forget your can of whipped cream to complete the cup.
Some of our favorite memories come with a hot cup of cocoa in hand, friends laughing and enjoying each other’s company around the fire, and a crisp chill in the air to keep you bundled up and looking at the clear sky of stars above.
Here are some items you might not think of that could be enjoyable during the Fall season:
- Rain jacket (just in case)
- Extra spices for hot drinks like cinnamon and nutmeg
- Pumpkin spice Oreos for fancy Fall S’mores
- Pumpkin-flavored versions of your favorite snacks!
