Apart from bringing your own sleeping bag, we can assist with everything else!.  We can arrange equipment or assist you to purchase suitable equipment for any outdoor activity. So don’t let equipment stand in the way of your adventure. We also provide a complete pack list, plus a little side list of what not to bring!

What should I not bring?

We know you’re new to this, but please remember you have to carry what you bring. So NO spare food, extra extra clothes, spare shoes, radios, speakers, makeup cases, unnecessary toiletries, mirrors, phone chargers, big books, kindles, iPads etc etc etc. Everyone carries a bit of food, so make sure you leave some space in your rucksack.

If you need, we can also supply your tent, mat and rucksack so all you need is some clothes. Our guides also carry all the cooking equipment, plus most of the food and we even prepare it for you!

How hard will it be?

We won’t sugarcoat it, overnight hiking can be hard work! But you know what, the reward is ALWAYS worth it and every one of our clients has revelled in their accomplishment. The biggest factor is overnight hiking is not the walking, not the terrain, or the distance – it’s carrying the rucksack. So our suggestion is to grab a bag, fill it up with stuff and start going for walks.

Will there be toilets and showers?

Mmmm, sometimes… Depending on which walk you book into, some walks have toilet facilities and some require you to go bush. There are NO shower facilities on an overnight hikes, however there are rivers, streams, and beaches though 🙂

Do I need to bring a rain jacket?

Yes, we strongly recommend bringing a rain jacket if inclement weather is expected during the event.

Do I need hiking poles?

No. You are welcome to bring them if you have them, however they are not mandatory.
