Adventure Travel Wish List – What’s On Yours?

What’s on your adventure travel wish list?

You could hop on a plane and spend a fortnight lying on a beach. You’ll get a nice tan, you’ll read a few forgettable books, and you’ll have a few drinks, a few meals and then fly home. A few weeks later your tan and your memories will have faded fast. Or you could pick a destination from your adventure travel wish list and enjoy an experience that you will never forget.

The world is full of far flung amazing places and some of them may be on your personal adventure travel wish list. You could visit the Peruvian jungles, witnessing incredible scenery and archaeological treasures. Or maybe you have South Africa as your number one adventure travel destination. Alternatively, some of the best travel experiences in the world simply start with you putting a pin in the globe and setting out.

Adventure Travel Wish List South Africa

Do you want a holiday, or an adventure? 

Your adventure travel wish list might not include Europe – you may automatically think of France or Spain and standard package holidays – but there are some hidden treasures and remote areas that will show you breath-taking scenery. If you want a more remote part of Europe then Romania can provide an unexpected destination. If this is not on your list, it is worth taking a look at everything this country has to offer.

If you want to seek out local traditions and lifestyles on your next adventure trip, you could consider visiting Myanmar. Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, and Iran, are only just emerging as adventure destinations, so you will be able to discover an authentic and untouched country. With ruined temples covering the plain of Bagan, you will treated to remarkable views and vistas as you travel between revered Buddhist sites, such as the ‘balancing Golden Rock’ at Kyaiktiyo and the Mahamuni Pagoda in Mandalay.

For friendly, helpful advice on expedition preparation for your adventure travel wish list, please call us. We have many years of adventuring experience and because of this we can advise you on what will make your adventure a success.

Landrover Overlanding – For The Best Adventure

Landrover Overlanding because the world is waiting!

Landrover overlanding is the ultimate in adventure exploration. You have complete freedom – you can travel anywhere in a well-equipped and properly serviced Landrover. Explorers have been using Landrovers for overland adventuring since the Series 1 was released in 1948. Indeed George Adamson drove from the UK to Kenya in a Series 1 Landrover as part of his honeymoon – there’s nothing like starting your marriage off with a challenge!

Landrover overlanding is a remarkable way to see the world – it allows you access to places off the beaten track, which are too remote to reach on foot and too distant for any holiday tour to take you to. With a well-stocked Landrover, a bit of determination and a dose of common sense you can go to all the places that you have ever dreamed of. In 1953 a family of 4 drove from Bath to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in a Series 1 Landrover, so don’t let the presence of children put you off!

At Expedition Equipment we understand Landrover overlanding, so we can help you to get your Landrover overland equipment sorted. We will make sure that you are fully kitted out with all the essentials. Because we have been there in the dusty deserts and the damp jungles, we know what pieces of equipment will make your adventure a success. We source the very best in travel equipment from all across the world, so that we bring you the ultimate tried and tested collection for your adventuring.

Landrover Overlanding

4 x 4 adventure travel will be something that you will never forget, but if you come to us to help you prepare your Landrover expedition vehicles, we can make sure your trip is memorable for all the right reasons, not the wrong ones! Then all you will have to do when you get home is start planning your next adventure!

The portable fridge freezer – so you can be cool everywhere!

Portable fridge freezers… because a cool drink at the end of a long, hot day is a thing of beauty. At APB Expedition Equipment we know what you want at the end of the day and it certainly isn’t a warm drink! With our range of travel fridges and freezers to cover every budget, we can help you enjoy yourself.

No matter which of our portable fridge freezers you buy, the basic rules to get the most out of it still apply. When you are driving always make sure it is strapped down, and that the temperature is set correctly. When you set up camp, try not to park in direct sunlight as this will mean that your portable fridge freezer has to work harder, thereby using more battery power.

portable fridge freezer

Make sure the latch is always fastened on your portable fridge freezer which will make sure the seals are working to their optimum. Fridges work best when they are full, so make sure you have enough food and drink! Also keep any leftovers in sealed containers so they don’t spill.

 

On the technical side, always choose the thickest power cable and make sure you carry spare fuses. If you want to really protect your portable fridge freezer you can even buy it a protection jacket. Remember the harder the fridge has to work the more power it will consume. APB National Luna fridges are the only fridge to be approved by the World Health organisation.

APB Expedition Equipment helping you keep your cool.

At APB Expedition Equipment we have lots of experience of overland adventuring and camping and we are always happy to help you. We offer an extensive selection of portable fridge freezers to suit different budgets and differing requirements. From keeping your beer cool to feeding a large family party our variety of different sizes and functions mean that you will be always be able to find the ideal solution for your demands.

You can also look at our previous blog update on camping lights to check out the various ways of lighting up your camping area.

Camping lights for the brightest sparks.

They say that the darkest hour is just before dawn, but with our fantastic selection of camping lights from APB Expedition Equipment we can dispel even that darkness. With our impressive range of lighting, spanning the old-fashioned fluorescent to the modern LED, all your individual preferences are catered for.

Camping lights are a matter of personal choice. The LED light is hailed as a modern technological masterpiece, it is bright, efficient and nearly everlasting, however some people find the quality of the light to be hard and cold and despite the benefits would rather choose another type of camp lighting.

camping lights

Fluorescent lighting is deemed to be old fashioned and considered to be inferior to the LED camping lights. But the light from fluorescent lighting is softer and kinder on the eyes. Unfortunately if you prefer this type of lighting, it is now very difficult to source. As the industry swung completely in favour of LED lighting, most companies stopped manufacturing fluorescent lighting. Indeed, one of the very few companies  still to manufacture the 12V fluorescent light is National Luna, a South African company.

APB Expedition Equipment bring you camping lights to light up your darkest hour.

At APB Expedition Equipment we pride ourselves on giving our customers choice at an affordable price. We provide a complete service from vehicle preparation for overland adventuring to camping out whatever your requirement.  We are endlessly searching for the best products to bring to our customers and we research all our suppliers to ensure that we bring you the very best that there is from all round the world. So if you are not sure which camping lights will best fulfil your requirements you can rest assured that we will always help you to reach the best solution for you.

The portable fridge – for all your adventures!

All adventures rely on a well-fed and watered team. When you are equipping your camp kitchen there are lots of things to consider. At APB  Expedition Equipment we offer a full range of kitchen accessories to help you every step of the way. But the most important has to be the portable fridge, so that you can keep all of your food in tip top condition.

portable fridge

We offer a full range of portable fridges to suit every budget. With a range of different capacities according to your requirements. All our portable fridges have top quality insulation and this is one of the most important factors in portable fridge design. The better the insulation the easier it is for the portable fridge to remain cool.

APB Trading Expedition Equipment – helping you keep your cool with a portable fridge.

Other factors that are instrumental in top quality portable fridge design are compressors, conductivity and electronics. The compressor’s job is to pull the fridge’s temperature down, so a good compressor is essential. Conduction is how the fridge draws the heat out. This is hard to see from the outside, and unfortunately is an area where some manufacturers cut corners. With APB Expedition Equipment we can reassure you that we only sell portable fridges from reputable, proven brands, so that you know the quality will be up to standard. Good electronics help regulate the temperature, thereby allowing your portable fridge to work to its very best ability.

This seems like a lot to ask from one fridge. But with a good quality manufacturer you know that all these elements are covered. With all these requirements in place your food, drink and medicines will be kept perfectly cool, ready for you to enjoy. Our National Luna  fridges are approved by the  World Health Organisation.  Reliability comes as standard with APB Expedition Equipment’s excellent range of travel fridges and freezers and indeed all our camping and adventuring equipment.

Camping Fridge Freezer – simply the best!

The camping fridge freezer has quite simply revolutionised the camping and adventuring industry. Before the advent of travel fridges and freezers, food was entirely limited to tinned produce, which made for a fairly limited diet. But now with the arrival of the ability to keep food cool, our camping menus are limited only by our imagination!

The camping fridge freezer was conceived as an idea in the 1990s, though its original inception was for the cold storage of medical vaccinations across Africa. Sadly due to political reasons the project was scrapped. However, by this time the prototype had been developed and so the manufacturers looked around to see who else might be interested in their design.

camping fridge freezer

In a “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” scenario the world of overland adventuring had not yet taken off, but as the camping fridge freezer came more into the public marketplace, more and more people began enjoying overland adventuring. At APB Expedition Equipment we have been supplying camping and adventuring equipment for many years, and offer an extensive collection to compliment your camping fridge freezer from kitchen accessories to storage boxes.

The camping fridge freezer is literally the best thing since sliced bread

The camping fridge freezer is a brilliant piece of equipment. It offers the ability to store food in two separate compartments at different temperatures. With a very sophisticated electronic system, the original camping fridge freezer was a masterpiece of its time. Today it is still being copied by some manufacturers.

At APB Expedition Equipment we bring our years of knowledge in camping and adventuring into our business. We ensure that we offer a full range of camping fridge freezers to cover every budget and capacity requirement, while never compromising on quality. When you fit out your camp kitchen with us, you can rest assured that we have selected all the items in our ranges for their reliability and functionality.
