Sandstorm Kenya is a brand worth knowing for any traveler searching for the perfect bag to take on an African adventure. Whether you’re gorilla trekking in Rwanda or participating in game drives through South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Sandstorm offers bags that merge functionality with fashion and legacy.
Sandstorm was originally founded as a safari tent manufacturer and morphed into a mainstay for beautifully rugged pieces that protect your clothing and other valuables from the elements. Utilizing local materials, canvas and leather with hand stitching, Sandstorm churns out beautiful items that will endure through even the harshest of environments.
I recently used their travel bags, the “Deluxe Adventurer” and “Long Weekender”, for a trip through the Virunga Volcanoes of Rwanda. The bags, in hunter green canvas and tanned leather, provided me a beautiful and functional way to carry my items throughout the trip. At the end of my ten days in Rwanda, despite being toted around in varying climates, my bags looked as good as new.
