OVERNIGHT BIVOUAC STAY

Does it get cold in the night at the Bivouac site?

Depending on the time of the year dictates how low the temperature drops, we provide you with a suitable sleeping bag for the weather but it's always wise to bringing an extra jumper.

What happens if it rains?

We will always check the weather forecast for that day/night and have tents and tarps available should we need them. However, there are large Marabout tents permanently set up at the Bivouac site, they will provide shelter should it rain unexpectedly during the night.
