Ensure your vehicle is in first class mechanical condition with an adequate supply of spares, including fan belt, engine hoses, two spare tyres, tow ball, extra fuel and water.
To ensure you don't lose your entire supply in the event of a puncture or split in your container, it is reccommended to carry your water in a number of containers. Allow approximately 5-6 litres of water, per person, per day & extra for your vehicle and emergencies.
When heading into really remote country, always leave details of your trip, including your estimated time of return or arrival at a particular place, with a responsible friend, relative and/or local police or rangers.
