Baggage limitations vary greatly depending on the tour. Land transport normally can accommodate a standard-sized suitcase plus a personal daypack-sized item or camera bag. Tours involving in-country air travel may have a strict baggage limit that varies by country. In those cases participants will be responsible for any excess baggage charges they incur. Unfortunately, weight limits enforced by carriers are often inflexible, so photographers should consult with Exotic Birding or the airline prior to departure if weight limits appear to be an issue for your tour.

Please avoid bringing oversized bags, steamer trunks, or multiple suitcases on tour as space within vehicles may be insufficient to transport excessive luggage during the tour. Participants who bring excess baggage may be required to store some of their luggage at their expense for the duration. Please refer to our packing tips for further information on what to bring on tour.
