Created with the safaris of yesteryear in mind, a full leather bag that combines clever craftsmanship and design with luxury styling to add vintage sophistication to your safari, travels, and every day. Our new Mara&Meru™ Quintessential Bag is the stylish and sophisticated cousin of our popular Rufiji Explorer. Made from beautifully crafted tan leather and complemented by durable brass zips and studs, this bag will accompany you on many adventures!
The Rufiji™ Safari Explorer was designed with real-life African travel experiences in mind. The Mara&Meru™ Quintessential Bag transplants these practical design elements into a bag fashioned from tan leather with brass detail reminiscent of classical safaris. Take a piece of iconic safari style with you on business trips, travels to exotic places, and on your day-to-day urban adventures.
The large, cavernous interior of the bag is accessed through the horseshoe-shaped zip and the uninterrupted main compartment of the bag has adequate space for all of your clothing whether you are going on long safaris or short trips. As the Quintessential Bag is soft, squashy, and durable, you can pack for your African travels with the assurance that your luggage will be able to endure tough transit. Back home, for daily use or on shorter trips its strength and striking, natural design make it a fitting all-round choice for any outing.
A note about luggage handlers & ground staff in Africa: We stand by the quality of the construction of our leather range and the quality of the safari-grade leather we use to make our bags. We have also expedition tested all of our leather luggage so that we know just how tough it is. Leather is, however, a fabric and as with all fabrics it has its 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 Rufiji™ bag 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.
