What luggage should I pack for trekk?

It is important to keep luggage to the barest minimum when on trek or safari, as this will ease the burden of the drivers, vehicles and porters. Baggage should be of the round squashy type rather than hard suitcases that are difficult to fit into vehicle. Try to use something that is both lockable and water proof as luggage can often end up sitting on the roof of the vehicle.

It is a good idea to bring another smaller bag so that unwanted clothes can be kept in it at the hotel or our office when you go on trek. This also helps to keep city clothes clean and free from dust. You should also bring a small day pack which can be carried while hiking or riding or can be readily accessible when you are traveling in the vehicles on long drives. On camping trips all equipment will be provided.

It should be noted that the luggage limit per person on domestic flights is 15-20 kg per person (checked-in and hand luggage).

On your inbound flight, don’t check in items that you absolutely need (such as medicines), as it is not uncommon that checked-in luggage gets misdirected and arrives in Tanzania a couple of days after you. It is better to have such items in your hand luggage.
