A core bag with a range of attachments that allow you to "Build Your Bag" for daily use or multi-day adventures. Create the bag you need for going on safari, business trips and weekends away and everything in between. Our new Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager is The Everything Bag for You. It is the quintessential multi-functional travel bag that can be used for any and every trip you go on - long or short! The Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager (Your Everything Bag) is just about the best thing to happen to The Safari Store. Brainchild of our founder, Steve Adams, the Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager (Your Everything Bag) stemmed from the desire to create the ultimate travel bag which could also be used on shorter trips and daily activities – a bag that can transform to fulfil your travel and lifestyle requirements.
The Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager (Your Everything Bag) in core mode is the perfect size for short journeys, weekends away, daily use, or as hand luggage. The core bag comes standard with two small side pockets that attach to the core bag with zips. These can be removed and used independently as satchels and come with detachable shoulder straps. This makes the Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager (Your Everything Bag) ideal for long trips which involve 'mini adventures'. The detachable sides can be taken on daytrips while the main bag remains safely at the lodge.
We also stock a range of attachments that zip to the Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager (Your Everything Bag) so you can customise your bag with ease. With the complete Mara&Meru™ set of bags, you will never need another bag again! The ability to add or remove attachments to create the individual bag of your choosing means that your Safari Voyager is wholly adaptable to meet your needs.
Other attachments available for the Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager (Your Everything Bag):
- 3-in-1 Pocket/Satchel/DayPack (Adjustable depth)
- 4-in-1 Pocket/CameraBag/Satchel/Daypack
A note about luggage handlers & ground staff in Africa: We stand by the quality of the construction of our canvas and leather range and the quality of the safari-grade canvas and leather we use to make our bags. We have also expedition tested all of our canvas and leather luggage so that we know just how tough it is. Canvas and leather are, however fabrics and, as with all fabrics, they have their limitations. While cases are few and far between and we have not experienced puncturing on our own safaris and expeditions, fabric, by its very nature, is able to puncture or tear if subjected to force, sharp objects, if thrown along an abrasive surface, or other forms of harsh handling. We urge any clients who have their luggage damaged by luggage handlers & ground staff to contact us for a quote to submit to their travel insurance to make a claim.
Say no to plastic packaging
Your Mara&Meru™ luggage is packaged in a re-usable canvas drawstring bag. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.
First of all the quality is outstanding and stitching is heavy duty. This travel bag is made to last and is something that can be passed down to your children. It's really made that well. The storage is ample for a multi-day travel excursion. I like the 4 metal feet on the bottom to protect the canvas. The set is complete with plenty of handling straps. It's configured to also be carried as a satchel on your back for heavy loads. The detachable bags can configure the main bag to be used for airline carry-on or check-in. I simply love this bag. I will not leave home without it. If you're in the market for a high quality and durable product, this is it. LOOK NOT FURTHER.
This has become my go-to bag for every adventure. It has accompanied me to Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. It has been in a sandstorm, a shaky Land Rover and a boat and still looks great!
Bag has arrived and, wow, it's impressive – beefy zips and straps! You can definitely tell that a lot of thought has been put into it. Great job, Steve (and the team).

I have just been admiring my Mara&Meru™ bag and it is fabulous! Everyone will be envious! Well done, The Safari Store!
...this bag is just the icing on the cake...I had ordered clothing previously & was very impressed with everything...when I received this bag & day/camera bag I couldn't of been happier...it is everything that I could of wished for & more.
I don't normally leave reviews but this bag is simply brilliant. I purchased it with the additional Camera Bag Attachment which has now become my main camera bag for day trips. The main bag itself is very well made, zips that can handle even the roughest of users, lots of space and really nice features such as a hidden/pack away straps on the detachable bags. It also looks the business!
