Luggage and bags: I ALWAYS USE A SMALL BACKPACK THAT CARRIES MY NEEDED ITEMS.. (BELOW)
THE MAIN ITEM TO CARRY IS A LARGE BOTTLE OF WATER..


Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE GOOD RELIABLE WALKING BOOTS/SHOES HERE AS A TWISTED ANKLE CAN MEAN DISASTER..
DUE TO WHAT CAN BE EXTREME HEAT OUT HERE WEAR A GOOD WIDE BRIMMED HAT FOR MAXIMUM SUN PROTECTION..
ANOTHER ITEM I FIND A MUST IS A PONCHO.. MINE IS A SMALL ROLLED UP POCKETSIZE .


Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I ALWAYS CARRY A GOOD INSECT AND MOSQITO REPELLANT WHEN TRAVELLING IN THE BUSH HERE..EASILY AVAILABLE ..
A GOOD SUNBURN PROTECTION CREAM AT LEAST 30+
.A SMALL PACKET OF FACEWIPES.ALSO HANDY FOR CLEANING SMALL INJURIES
A GOOD LIP BALM.AND A SMALL PACKET OF TISSUES IN CASE YOU HAVE TO GO...


Photo Equipment: A GOOD CAMERA IS A MUST OUT HERE TO CAPTURE THE MARVELLOUS SCENES OF NATURE.
THE NECCESARY CHARGING EQUIPMENT .(CHARGE UP BEFORE SETTING OUT FOR THE DAY.)
A SPARE MEMORY CARD.
AN INTERNATIONAL POWER PLUG ADAPTOR.


Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A SMALL SELF CHARGING TORCH..THIS IS A MUST

Miscellaneous: REMEMBER WHEN WALKING OUT HERE...CARRY PLENTY OF WATER ...NEVER WALK ALONE....AND ABOVE ALL BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHEN WALKING..LOOK WHERE YOU ARE TREADING !!!.THIS IS A VERY ISOLATED AREA..A TWISTED ANKLE CAN MEAN DISASTER. NO DOCTOR DOWN THE ROAD..
ALSO WHEN ARRIVING AT NATIONAL PARKS BEFORE SETTING OUT ....USE THE AMMENITIES..!!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
