Luggage bags

Always been a suitcase person but thinking of carrying duffle bags.

Any advice?

Duffle bags are easier to load onto planes, and also the back of vans.

For the flight or just for safari? Would agree with soft bags for safari as long as you can seal them to keep the dust out.

Not so good for the flight especially for breakables. Once had shampoo covered clothes on arrival when a bottle split.

Soft bags/cases are a must for safari transport either by road or by air.

Maybe been lucky, but for the liquids packed into my checked duffle bag,

- be sure bottle (plastic) isn't filled to the top... gotta leave some air space as things expand at altitude

- pack in two ziplock bags, one each is opposite directions, and

- pack between clothing

so far so good.
