The perfect solution to those light aircraft luggage restrictions
If your safari includes traveling between camps in light aircraft, you’ll need to use luggage that works within the airlines’ requirements. The luggage compartments of these planes are limited in space and thus the need to have soft sided luggage. While some of the companies will let us get by with our beloved 22″ bags with 3 soft sides, most require that the bags be soft-sided all around and no wheels. When wheels aren’t allowed, I’ve found Eagle Creek’s Load Hauler to be the perfect solution. It offers the space of a duffel while providing the option of carrying it as backpack which lightens the load while traveling through airports.
