Now that your
safari plans have been set, the details begin to emerge and as you re-read your
itinerary and your eyes do a double take as they land on the phrase “Note:
luggage restrictions … “ and so it begins! THE most popular topic of
Yes, there is
a high probability that if you are going on safari that you will be on a light
aircraft flight, which means there will be luggage restrictions! Trust us when
we say, we are not implementing these restrictions to torment you. Rather, these
are set for safety reasons and due to limited storage space on board the plane.
The restrictions vary between the different light aircraft companies as
the size of the plane does affect how small the luggage hold is.
At Global Sojourns, we often use the term “old world safari”. This describes a camp where your creature comforts are met but the focus is more on nature and the wildlife viewing experience than on accommodation luxuries. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of luxury travelers coming on safari. Many camps have responded by adding an array of amenities including expansive rooms, spas, plunge pools, wifi throughout, butlers and more. This has brought some benefits all around as everyone has “upped their game” comfort wise but for us, an excess of amenities can get in the way of providing one with what we find so special about the safari experience…. the awe of nature.
Sandibe offers all the modern comforts (spa, fitness room, wifi, espresso) while retaining a high quality bush experience with their game rich concession and quality guides and tracker system. Outstanding food, service and great wines top off the experience!
We love going on safari. We love sending clients on safari. Many people mistakenly think there is a good time or a bad time of year to visit the bush. Not so! Each season – each month – offers surprises and unique opportunities depending on your priorities and interests.
