What baggage is best on a week's Safari?

I'm going on the First Choice Tanzanian 7 day safari in a few weeks and covering a lot of miles. On my last trip to Kenya I did a 3 day trip to the Masai Mara but stayed in the same lodge all the time. Any advice on what sort of luggage is best to take on a 7 day trip? Rucsack I suppose but how big? Anyone done anything similar?

All advice welcome, Dave

We find that a large holdall is best, if travelling by plane between parks then often a soft sided case/holdall is compulsory.

Although its' difficult living out of a small selection of clothing for a week it is possible, we have often made good usage of many of the lodges laundry facilities.

We went on a weeks' safari in Tanzania in '05 its' a great experience particularly the Ngorogoro crater.
