Please note that whether you are travelling by hunting vehicle or private charter during your trip, all forms of safari transportation have limited packing space available. So if possible please restrict your luggage to between 10–12 kilograms (22-26lbs) and make use of a soft bag (duffel type bag) – particularly for flights.
Our camps are fully equipped and laundry is done daily, so there is no need to bring extra gear. Charter companies are very strict with excess weight and the commercial airlines are also imposing more stringent regulations. Pack for comfort and please note that warm clothing during June, July and August is essential.
