Please note that it is advisable to carry a small duffel bag or soft case (20 kg limit) in your main suitcase for your time at the lodge. The airlines don’t accept rigid cases, but will store them while you are at the lodge, so you will have to pack your soft bag with your clothing and other equipment for your safari, and then leave the hardbox suitcase at the airline offices, where they will take care of it.

Charter flights can be arranged any other day of the week – for more information or to make a booking email us.
