On most flights Luggage allowance is 15 kilos. [33lbs] This includes camera equipment and carry-on baggage. Excess baggage is charged a fee depending on the weight.
If you decide to take a flight and a vehicle to follow your itinerary then your luggage will be transported by road and reach you later.
Luggage and personal effects are at owners risk throughout the Safari.
In the event of scheduled flight delay, loss or damage of luggage, over booking or cancellation, if this occurs Prestons Safaris cannot be held liable for any costs incurred. Any grievances or compensation if applicable should be sought from the airline concerned but not Prestons Safaris.
Prestons Safaris and their agents act only as agents for the passenger with respect to services provided, included but not limited to, camps, lodges, hotels, restaurants, birding & game rides and all forms of transportation.
