Weight limitation on OAT Kenya/Tanzania Trip Weigh too LOW

Jump to last reply

Just read through the final info booklet sent us by OAT for our 15 day Kenya/Tanzania adventure and to my amazement I see that there is a weight limit of 35 lbs total including the duffle bag and a carry-on. Wow!!! This is getting serious. Low weight limit because we will be taking two small planes in country, I guess. What this comes down to is that we will be taking strictly the bare essentials...........Wife says, " what about my make-up case?" I say, "I don't think so." Bare essentials are bare essentials! I say, " are you going to make yourself up for the animals?

How have all of you tried and true travelers handled this on your African safaris? What about you women? Did you leave your make-up cases behind?
