Travel Tips>>Packing List
         In general, pack lightly. Leave room for gifts and souvenirs. Soft sided luggage packs more easily into the safari vehicle.
         Always carry passport, airline tickets and money on your person. A fanny pack or moneybag that hangs around the neck works well. In case luggage doesn’t arrive the same day you do, put enough clothing and supplies for the first day in your carryon luggage.
         If taking a domestic flight luggage weight restrictions range between 15-20 kgs (33-44 lbs) total per person.
