Please keep your luggage to a minimum. One small soft-sided bag plus a day pack (of about 15-20 KG per person) is essential. We recommend against bringing hard/externally framed suitcases as they are difficult to store and can damage equipment and will restrict your movement in the vehicle.
If your tour includes flights to national parks, please check the baggage policy of these flights on their respective websites as these are strictly implemented and excess baggage can be rejected by some airlines sometimes.
Storage of Excess Luggage
If your trip is beginning and ending at the same location, excess luggage can usually be stored at your arrival/departure hotel and can be collected after your trip.
Luggage lost by Airlines
For international flights arriving into Tanzania/Kenya, it is not uncommon for the luggage to arrive a day or two late.
To be prepared for such cases, we recommend you to pack all your essentials like medicines, travel documents, set of clothes e.t.c in your hand luggage so that you can proceed for your safari as per your schedule without waiting for your luggage to arrive.
