There is no drinkable water at the base camp or on the river. Please pack at least 2 litres of bottled water per day. We don't allow any glass on the river so please decant into plastic containers. It is advised that you freeze some of your water, so that it will be defrosted but still cold towards the end of your trip.
Snacks for the river: dried fruit, biltong, dry sausage, peanuts, bars of chocolate, super C's and jelly babies.
