What we provide
- Chaps. Feel free to bring your own if you prefer (chaps are the things that stop your lower leg getting rubbed – you don't need the full length version modelled here by Sam G!).
- Saddle bags. These are big enough to fit items you will need during the day, such as water bottle, suncream, snacks and camera.
- Tack. Saddle, bridle etc, are all included.
- WE DO NOT SUPPLY HARD HATS, however we strongly recommend you bring one.
Personal Camping Equipment
- Tent (not shared unless you choose to)
- Eating utensils (plate, bowl, mug, cutlery)
Group Camping Equipment
- Camp kitchen (pots'n'pans, knives, chopping boards etc)
- Seats. We use camping chairs as a bench-mark for the line between 'wilderness adventure' and 'tourist camp'. So no camping chairs, but we do provide simple wooden benches with padded cushions, to draw up to the camp fire in the evening.
- Wash stand. We are big on hygiene, so we set up a hand-washing station, with soap and hand-towel.
- Reference books. Guides to the birds and beasts of Mongolia, language guides, maps.
- Binoculars. For spotting the birds and beasts. If you have a particular interest in wildlife, and a favourite pair of binoculars, bring them along. When someone yells 'wolf', it will be gone before your turn with the binos.
- Inverter and battery charger. For running mains power electrical items (~230V), including charging cameras. There is an adaptor which takes standard international plugs, and a charger for re-chargeable AA and AAA batteries, so bring those rather than disposables. For 12V charging, our vehicles have standard cigarette lighter sockets. You could even bring your hair drier (but we know you won't).
- Water filter (Zavkhan trips only). Read more about drinking water in the FAQs.
- Clothes washing bowls, warm water, and laundry powder.
