Arriving at my chosen spot, which the farmer had conveniently recently mown, I pitched my tent behind a thick clump of bracken and settled in for the night. The woodland just behind me has a large badger population, but disappointingly, I didn’t see or hear any of them.
Whether you’re a first time Wild Night Outer or an experienced wild camper, you’ll probably be thinking of sharing your experiences with your family and friends on social media or maybe a blog or website.
Last year for Wild Night Out, we pitched our not so little tent in the garden and kitted it out with camping gear. It felt like we were on safari in this tent! In fact, we enjoyed it so much we slept in the tent for two nights.
Through Wild Night Out we can inspire each other to get outside but there are also those that need a bit more help.
Campfire cooking is brilliant fun. If you’ve never tried it before, Wild Night Out is the perfect time to give it a go. With the right equipment you can cook just about anything on a campfire, but for those who like to keep it simple here are a few foods you can cook on a stick.
Are you looking to take the leap from ploughing through warm, chlorinated water to diving headlong into cold open rivers, seas and lakes? Well, first thing you need to do is take a breath and settle any fears you might have.
Wild camping is a great opportunity to get closer to wildlife and for wildlife to get closer to you too.
