5 Tips To Follow For An Enjoyable Desert Camping Trip
Compared to spending the night in the forest, spending the night in the desert is a completely different experience. The climate is warm, and there are hardly any trees or plants around. However, this is a fascinating place and a great place to enjoy a nice bonfire under the starry night sky.
Dessert Camp requires careful planning and preparation. Follow these helpful tips for a most enjoyable experience!
Pack your important things
Before starting your adventure, it is important to do a little research on the destination of your choice. Read articles or blogs about other people’s experiences camping in the area to find out what happens.
One of the most important things to discover is wild animals. The desert is home to all kinds of animals and insects. You can find snakes, spiders, scorpions, etc. Know in advance what to do when you find them.
Make a list the essentials
The best way to make sure you don’t forget anything important is to make a list. Write down all the necessities, such as food, clothes, toiletries, pyjamas, kitchen utensils, navigation tools, etc.
Since the weather will be very hot (depending on where you are and the time of year), don’t forget your hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellent, and clothing appropriate for the weather. But be sure to bring warm clothes too! Some nights will be very cold; you need blankets and a sleeping bag suitable for the weather.
Fill up with gas
Driving through the desert can take several hours, and you don’t want to be stuck in a remote location because you run out of gas. Carry as much fuel as possible. The deeper the desert, the fewer gas stations and more in between.
Arriving before dark
It is easy to get lost in the desert, especially at night. Once the sun goes down, the area will become very, very dark, and it will be more difficult for you to navigate. Plan your trip wisely so that you get to camp before dark and have time to camp.
Bring lots of water.
The desert is a hot and dry place with a shortage of water. As a camper, the biggest threat you face is dehydration, so make sure you have enough water during your trip.
