A few things to remember:



  • This is a full day hike - please bring along your own water (3L), snacks and lunch
  • There is no fresh water along the route
  • Ensure you are protected against sunburn
  • Wear your comfortable hiking shoes - gaiters are recommended (protects against sand in shoes)
  • In your backpack you might also bring a rain jacket / poncho / small first aid kit / sun hat / costume / small towel / toilet paper or tissues / bags for rubbish

 

A fixed amount of the registration fee of each registered Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse walker will also be donated towards the secondary beneficiary. The event is advertised in local media who encourage the local community to come and support this initiative.
