List of Items required for rafting. PLEASE TRAVEL AS LIGHT AS YOU CAN.
- At least two extra sets of dry clothes. As it is cold from November through February, a waterproof jacket will be very handy. While trousers, pullovers or jackets are needed for the morning and evening, during the day, shorts and T-shirts will suffice for the month of September, October, March, April, and May. As clients will arrive completely soaked onshore at the campsites, immediate change into a dry set of clothing is necessary. Tracksuits are the most popular item for any rafters.
- The second pair of tennis shoes or slippers for use around the camp.
- Protection from the sun such as sunglasses, sunhats, cream, and lotions to prevent sunburn and insect repellant during the warmer months.
- Electric torchlights as the use of candles are not advisable inside the tents.
