Kit List

Suggested kit list/what to bring: The suggested packing list below should help with deciding what to bring to camp.  All clothing should conform to game management/industry standard (khaki and / or green). Sensible Shoes and a hat to be worn at all times. Clothes must be neat and clean. No bright colours (such as football shirts & white trainers/shoes) should be worn when out in the bush.  If you are unsure about any of this then please ask.

Volunteers will be expected to launder their own clothes while on camp and will be able to do this using the facilities at their chalet. Each chalet has a tap and cement basin for this reason. Clothes can be cleaned in town at the laundrette, but this can take a week to be returned and sometimes not everything sent for laundry comes back!
