This satchel is equally at home in the office or on the high street as it is on safari in the Serengeti. In fact, it is perfect for just about any activity: fishing, walks, picnics, carrying your laptop, or as bag for the beach – the options are endless.

This is an ideal bag to take with you on safari to carry books, camera equipment, travel documents, and accessories. It is also very useful for everyday use. The classic safari styling of the satchel ensures that you will certainly stand out in your professional and social life.

The detachable leather handle at the top of the bag fits comfortably in the hand for carrying the bag as a briefcase or laptop bag. This handle has the additional subtle styling of brass buckles in keeping with the overall look of the bag. The adjustable-length shoulder strap is fixed to the bag and is made of thick woven canvas. The satchel has two zipped outer pockets, a sizeable zipped main compartment, and a thin back pocket. The top flap of the bag closes using leather straps and stylish brass buckles. It also has quick-access studs on the flap, so there is no need to fiddle with buckles when you're on the move.

The Rufiji™ Safari Explorer Satchel – Further Information:
With the strict limitations and challenges of African travel our foremost concern, we designed and manufactured the Rufiji™ Luggage Range which was modelled around real African experiences. The range was conceived to meet the need for luggage that had the strength and features to meet some of the toughest travel requirements yet retain the elegance and luxury of the safari ideal. To further augment the range – and based on the same high standards underpinning all our luggage – the Mara&Meru™ Luggage Range was born to meet the demand for travel and lifestyle luggage.

As a result, the Rufiji™ and Mara&Meru™ Luggage Ranges have grown into a versatile collection of bags and accessories which can be used for short trips, long adventures, or daily as an expression of safari style. Each design is brought to life by high quality craftsmanship and the finest materials – from specially-tanned, supple cowhides to safari-grade 100% cotton canvas and solid brass fittings. The ranges bring these materials together to deliver a striking combination of luxury, style, and durability. Designed to be strong enough to withstand the rigors of African travel, the Rufiji™ and Mara&Meru™ Safari Luggage Ranges merge incredible strength with exceptional style for luggage that takes you everywhere. The Rufiji™ and Mara&Meru™ Luggage Ranges are exclusively available from The Safari Store.

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.

A note about canvas and leather: 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 and bags so that we know just how tough they are. 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.
