We just spent a week in the drakensberg but we didn’t get around to buying all the kids raincoats. We could have let that stop us from enjoying our walks in the mountains on rainy days BUT we didn’t. That was simply because we took some black plastic bags with us. We cut a small hole in the bottom as a head hole and a hole at each bottom corner or arm holes. We needed to tie it up a bit but it kept most of their bodies dry. (Just remember to throw the bag away afterwards as you don’t want you little ones playing with it when you not around.) We found so many exciting creatures that we would have missed if we had let the rain keep us at bay!
