Camping is a form of outdoor recreation that involves spending time in the great outdoors, usually in a tent or other portable shelter. It can be done in a variety of settings, including national parks, campers, beaches, and forested areas.
A camping trip might offer additional ways to unwind and relax. You experience what it’s like to live in the bush, including sleeping under the stars, waking up to the sound of birdsong, and viewing some of Kenya’s most incredible animals. It is necessary to camp according to your preferred weather, whether in very hot weather or chilly weather, as camping can be done during different seasons.
Checklist of essentials for camping.
1. Sleeping Gears.
A sleeping pad, sleeping bag, and tent are necessary for a comfortable camping trip. Make sure your sleeping bag is suitable for the environment where you’ll be camping. Rope, Masaai Shuka, and air pump are more examples.
2. Cooking Supplies.
Bring a portable grill or camp stove, as well as cooking equipment, silverware, and fuel. Bring enough water for drinking and cooking, a portable water filter, and enough food and snacks to last the duration of your journey.
Bring lanterns and a headlamp or flashlight with additional batteries. The magic here is the flashlight; glow in the dark. Carry a sharp pocket knife, lighter, camera, and firewood as well.
4. Personal Items.
Bring toilet paper, toothpaste, and other personal care items. Others are water bottles, a map or compass, a radio, and insect repellent.
