Packing doesn't have to be a chore; it can be just as much fun as a safari, especially
if you have something to work from. Please find below a list of suggested items
which can be used as a guideline whilst planning your trip.
Please remember summer months are Sept - Apr and winter months are May - Aug. During
the winter months it can get really cold at night and in the early morning, particularly
when on safari, so we would suggest that you pack accordingly.
While on safari, transfers between camps and lodges are usually facilitated by chartered
flights in light aircraft. These flights often practice strict baggage restrictions.
To ensure seamless boarding and departure adhering to the plane's baggage limitations
is strongly advised. Bags with wheels and a frame or hard base will not be accepted
on these flights.
The majority of chartered flights will only approve of soft-sided duffel bags. Please
note that on some light aircraft transfers there are luggage restrictions of between
15kg (33lbs) and 20kg (44lbs) (in a soft bag with no wheels or frame). Please ensure
you have all the details according to your itinerary to avoid leaving luggage behind
or having to buy new.
