DKNC Questions

Postby caz bird03 » Fri Nov 25, 2011 3:12 am


My boyfriend and I depart on the DNKC trip on 12th Dec and have a few questions to ask regarding what to pack and what is available to us, so here it goes.

Does GAP provide mattresses and pillows and are they of good quality?

We have been travelling for 7 months now and acquired a fair bit of baggage will this be a problem on the truck?

Does the truck have charge points?

Is it participation camping as in we cook as group or do we have a specified cook?

Lastly, do we need to bring our own mosquito net for the tent?

Awesome trip you are headed off on! We do supply the mattresses but no pillows. The mattresses are comfier than your average thermarest. I used one for 2 weeks when in Africa and slept quite well. The overland truck does have a power source so you will be able to charge cameras, etc at each stop.
The local CEO (tour leader) will do all the cooking although the group may be required to help chop some veggies or clean up after the meal. Your participation is mainly putting up your tents and helping with any other tasks that may need doing along the way.

Have you seen the "Before you go" link on our website? ... resources/
This provides alot of helpful information, including a suggested packing list.
You won't need to bring your own mosquito net as the tents have built in screens to keep the bugs out.
The extra baggage shouldn't be a problem as long as it is not too, too much. Your CEO will be able to assist with any alternative arrangements should it be an issue.
Have a great trip!
