The flying safari in Kenya and Tanzania requires easy-to-carry soft luggage to fit into the aeroplane baggage compartments as guests travel from extravagant camps to lodges. The Briggs & Riley Baseline Weekender Duffle is the ideal pairing for this trip with its slim yet ample design and numerous pocket adaptions for easy access to necessities. 

A Sri Lankan Sojourn with Torq takes guests on a tour to indulge in the history and culture of the island through visitations of UNESCO heritage sites. The trip is certainly an adventure of a lifetime, taking guests on many forms of transport as they travel through bridged mountains, into tea plantation valleys, on trains and in luxury cars. 

Paired with the South Asian voyage is the Torq Large Hardside Spinner, a piece of luggage that is sleek and durable — Perfect for the various boat rides and trains along the tour — and is ideal for cargo holds, overhead bins and all other resilience-required transport. 

An Indian Ocean Honeymoon complete with ‘Something Blue’ is for those looking to enjoy a relaxing beach trip in luxury destinations in the Maldives, Mauritius and the Seychelles. These experiences offer fine dining, a beach cinema alongside yoga sessions and water sports — offering a bit of everything; the trip is ideal for families and those looking for a romantic honeymoon getaway.

The Sympatico Large Expandable Spinner pairing is exclusively available for newlyweds and offered in a navy shade — the perfect ‘something blue’. The case contains CX expansion-compression technology, allowing travellers to pack up to 25% more than a classic case would allow. A service to personalise the luggage with new initials adds the perfect touch and truly ensures an unforgettable honeymoon experience.
