The following checklist should help you with your packing. As a general rule, you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment to a minimum (below 12kg). For the 2 days wild camping in the Ockavango Delta, you will take only essential items while your main luggage travels separately. We recommend that you bring a small fold-away bag to accommodate this.

You must bring the following items:

Comfortable hiking shoes or boots

Trainers / sneakers or sandals for camp

Trekking/walking/casual trousers (trekking pants)


Spare laces



Thermal base layer shirts


Loose-fitting, long-sleeved shirt with collar (for sun protection)
