HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT TIPS TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE BEST TIME AT VELD.
DRESS FOR THE WEATHER
Be sure to check the weather and dress appropriately (rain or shine).
If it is going to be hot and sunny do your best to avoid heat stroke by maintaining sun protection (sunscreen, hat and sunglasses), hydrating with water, and taking chill out breaks in shaded areas.
Consider wearing appropriate closed-toe footwear, such as sneakers, these are more comfortable and safer compared to flip-flops and sandals, especially in rainy and muddy conditions.
BE AWARE, STICK TOGETHER AND GET HELP

Familiarize yourself with the Veld map (available on the Veld App) and know where water stations, chill-out shaded areas, and medical tents are located.
