Camping, it’ll either spark fear or you’ll relish the chance to be in the great outdoors. Pack simple! Take all the necessary accessories you will need. A tent is the first camping essential if you want to be protected from the wind, rain or sunlight. Grab a tarp as well. A tarp is a perfect tool for covering something you don’t want to get wet. Don’t forget thermals and waterproof rainwear. Take good lightning, because you won’t be able to do anything in the dark. Keep supplies in a well-marked, durable, waterproof container and keep all your items organized. And if you forget something, don’t worry. You won’t make the same mistake next time.
It’s nearly midnight and we are camping just off the turning from Biribiriet near Eldoret on the Eldoret-Kapsabet roadThe night air is cold but stunningly revitalizing. This is the ultimate forest camping experience. The gurgle of the stream running at the bottom of the field, is inviting. The moon, hidden in the clouds, send a little light in the terrestrial grounds but our eyes have become accustomed to the darkness and we are no longer daunted by it. Instead, warmed by the camping fire, we are suddenly animated when somebody suggests a midnight walk with Beryl to the rivers edge in search of frogs! This may be my proverbial chance to kiss the frog and end up with prince charming, so I join in.
Booking accommodation directly with the campsite itself is often the cheapest option and sometimes your only option if you’re after an apartment or a bungalow. Campsites will usually have their own mobile homes and other types of accommodation. A number of independent operators will also have rental units on site, operators like Eurocamp, Canvas, Human Travel (formerly Elle Vacanze) , Al Fresco , Siesta, Suncamp, Roan Camping , Happy Camp , KelAir Camphotel and Select Camp to name a few. Best to price as many as possible for the dates in mind. Keep an eye out for early-booking discounts and check out aggregators like AllCamps and LuxCamp.
5. Hire a fridge freezer. This was my best discovery one baking August day as we were sat drinking warm tins of beer. For a few pounds, you can hire a full sized fridge freezer and one of the maintenance team will deliver it to your parcela (pitch). This is not part of the grass routes camping scenario I am fully aware, but my goodness it was a game changer. Whilst a couple of freezer blocks and a cool box will keep your milk and butter cool for a couple of days in the UK, in Spain you have no chance. Either plan to buy your dairy products every day, hire the fridge freezer, or take your own portable electric cooler.
Recreational vehicle will need a longer list Your list of camping gear will be according to your mode of carrying your stuff around for camping. If you are going by a van then you will need a longer list and can carry every little item that will make you more comfortable. You need not pick and choose but just take it all along so that you have all the comforts on hand. However, if you plan to go on a hike and will have to carry all your stuff in a back pack then go to the store and get yourself the best back pack you can. If you can get one that has an extra strap across the waist this is still better as it will help you to carry a heavier load and distribute the weight evenly across your shoulders.
