Head Torch

When you are constantly moving around from one budget room to another, the likelihood that there are lamps and bedside lights perfectly positioned for you to read in bed is slim to none. We use head torches on the red light setting which is great at night as the light isn’t so glaring meaning one of you can read whilst the other is sleeping.

LIFESYSTEMS Intensity 230 Headtorch, Black, One Size



Super useful when you are camping as we did in South Africa. A great alternative to sitting in your camper van or camp chair. All you need are two trees! These hammocks pack down into a small lightweight pack so are easy to carry.

Kit Charger 

So, so useful. We have used this charger to charge every single piece of electronic equipment we have, including our laptop. The last thing you want when you are out and about is for your camera or phone to run out of battery. This charger is about the size of a deck of cards.

Clothes line

Two stretchy lines twisted around each other (so no pegs needed) with a hook on each end. This can be thrown up either indoors or outdoors to hang up towels, pants, anything that needs drying.
