"What to bring with?" Pilgrim's Rest Packing List Tip by Jenniflower

Pilgrim's Rest What to Pack: 1 reviews and 1 photos

 
 

Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Some ideas:

Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing.

Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and possible insect bites.

A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.

Sunglasses.

Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take your recommended Malaria tablets if in a malaria zone, sun screen (at LEAST Factor 35 I would say), headache tablets (from being in the car during the sun all day, may bring on a headache), and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, Tabard for the mossies (mosquitos), cotton wool, germolene etc.

Photo Equipment: Your camera, with charger, and an appropriate plug extension/adaptor.

Bring along the best lens you can - a zoom lens will be needed as the animals are often in the distance and may only look like tiny specks in your photos when they are developed.

Miscellaneous: Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars. Take a torch and some bog roll if you are doing outdoorsy things (just in case!).

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
