You’ve decided to check a safari off your bucket list. Congratulations! Now all you need to worry about is getting there. For a lot of travelers, the thought of a long-haul flight can be overwhelming. If you are claustrophobic or uncomfortable with flying, it might even be a little scary. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to stay comfortable on the plane. Follow these tips and the plane ride will be over before you know it.

Stay Comfortable

Turbulence and cramped quarters mean that airplanes aren’t always the most comfortable environments. Wearing comfortable clothes and shoes will help you to feel better in the air. It’s also a good idea to choose your seat ahead of time and to consider where you will be most comfortable. While it can be easier to sleep in a window seat, many people feel less claustrophobic in an aisle seat. If you get motion sickness, try booking a seat near the wings, as the middle of the plane is less affected by turbulence.

Preparing For Sleep

Getting rest on the plane is one of the most important things you on your long-haul flight. Travel gear like earplugs, sleep masks, and neck pillows can help you get to sleep. You might also want to try a natural sleep aid like melatonin if you think you’ll have problems nodding off.
