Perfect Duffel Bag for African Safari Travel

Our Safari Duffel Bag

What luggage should I use for my African Safari?
One of the most common questions we receive from our clients is what size and type of luggage is best for an African Safari.

While weight limits and size restrictions vary for airlines and charter flights between safari camps, the following generally apply to air transfers in safari areas:
1.  Only soft bags will be accepted - no hard suitcases or bags with wheels can be transported, as they physically cannot fit into the aircraft.
2.  Maximum dimensions are generally 30 inches maximum in length.
3.  Weight is almost always 20kg at most, sometimes only 12kg or 15kg.

Without doubt, the best choice for luggage on a safari to Africa is the soft duffel bag.

In order to make things easy for our clients, we decided to offer you the very same duffel bag we use for our own luggage when we go on a safari.  This bag is what we consider to be the best duffel available for safaris or other adventure travel.

The bag is made by Eagle Creek, a manufacturer of very high-quality travel luggage.  All Eagle Creek gear is designed to last a lifetime.

The price of the Safari Duffel Bag is $90 (plus shipping).  Contact us if you would like to purchase this bag.
