Backpack with Hydration bladders

Backpacks

Should at least 2L of water, a snack and a light raincoat. Additionally they should have straps around the waist and chest, as well as side zippers for keys/mobiles.

Hiking shoes

Hiking Shoes

Are excellent for day treks lasting 1 to 4 hours. Light in weight and low on the ankle, they are ideal for flat, hilly and semi-rugged terrains with only a light day pack. Recommended for Level 1, some Level 2 and Family hikes.

Hiking Boots

Hiking Boots

Come halfway up the ankle providing support and protection from rolling your foot on tricky terrain. They’re a versatile option for a wide range of expeditions and are a must on more difficult treks. Recommended for Level 3 and 4 hikes.

Hiking Socks

Hiking Socks

Socks play a critical role in keeping your feet comfortable and blister-free throughout your trek.

Trekking POles

Trekking Poles

Enhance your stability and provide support on all types of terrain. Recommended for Dune Hiking (Liwa/Wathba) and Big Mountains. Not recommended for most Level 1/2 hikes.

Head Torches

Head Torches

When walking during sunset/sunrise, you can't beat the hands-free lighting convenience offered by a headlamp. Recommended for Liwa and all sunset/sunrise treks.
