Most guests visiting Botswana will at some point enjoy a light aircraft transfer in to one of the remote safari lodges, an amazing experience ensuring a totally exclusive safari experience!

In order to be prepared and avoid possibilities of re-packing on the spot at the airport, please ensure that you are fully aware of the luggage restrictions pertaining to your charter company.


The below is a general overview of the restrictions, but for absolute clarity please contact us and we will advise specifically for your booking.

Small aircraft allow a maximum of 20 kg’s per person for luggage (inclusive of hand luggage). 

Bags must be SOFT and easy to handlePlease note that large, hard suitcases and heavy luggage will not be accepted on light aircraft. Suitcases, oyster cases, and soft sided bags with trolley handles, metal frames and wheels do not constitute as soft bags and can not fit in the luggage pods of the aircraft.

Hard covered, rigid bags make it exceptionally difficult to load and unload in the aircraft luggage compartments.

Luggage dimensions should not exceed 25cm (10 inches) wide, 30cm (12 inches) high and 62 cm (24 inches) long. Anything larger and the luggage will unfortunately not fit in the aircraft’s baggage compartment.
