On Kilimanjaro, I need to use the restroom. On a Kilimanjaro trek, there are public bathrooms at each camp site. You will, however, need to decrease your expectations. Forget about porcelain urinals with locked doors, marble sinks with soap dispensers, hot water, and high-tech hand dryers. These amenities are available in Western toilets, but not everywhere they exist.
In general, there are two types of toilets on hiking trails: portable toilets and diggings. Portable toilets are small cabins with toilet seats that you pull down after you use them. They usually have cold water and a washrag for hand washing. Diggings are large holes in the ground where people can relieve themselves. Sometimes there is room beside the hole for a camping table or an incinerator to burn waste material.
On Mount Kilimanjaro, there are no private bathrooms except for those at hotels. However, most hikers using the bathroom at the Kibo Camp Site will also be carrying food up the mountain so they won't need to go too often. The best times to use the restrooms on Mount Kilimanjaro are early in the morning before it gets crowded and late at night when no one else is around.
There are two ways to carry water on a Mount Kilimanjaro trek: in bottles or in plastic bags. Bottled water is expensive on Kilimanjaro because there are no refills.
Most restrooms at Kew Gardens are open, and some will have capacity measures in place. Handwashing facilities are located at each gate and at strategic areas. Please be aware that the bathrooms at Kew Palace are being renovated. The Orangery, which has amenities, is a short walk away.
On Mount Kilimanjaro, there are no permanent showers or bathing facilities. All of our tour operator partners, on the other hand, will give you with a hot bowl of washing water every day. Some also provide a hand washing facility for campers to use. You can take a bath at these sites when it's convenient for you.
You should plan your trip around the availability of water because there are only a limited number of locations where you can find water. Most people who attempt the climb without taking a bath risk life-threatening conditions like dehydration and heat exhaustion.
If you do choose to take a bath, wear clean underpants and a shirt that you don't mind getting dirty. Avoid wearing silk underwear because the material keeps your body temperature down which can lead to colds or the flu.
Also, be sure to bring a towel with you because there are no towels available anywhere on the mountain.
Finally, carry a small amount of toilet paper with you so that you don't have to go in search of water while climbing.
The bathroom I described above is known as a "basic" site. These categories include hot showers, flush toilets, laundry facilities, and dining rooms. The quality varies between companies but most offer at least one of each.
The restrooms are open every day. (National Park Authority for the North York Moors).
Toilets are located on the cliff top, adjacent to the cafe. You can't miss them!
There is also a toilet block next to the car park with several free-to-use toilets. These are open during normal opening hours of the visitor centre.
Please do not leave any litter behind you in the woods - this includes toilet paper!
Also beware of snakes in the woods - they may be disturbed by your presence and will usually move away from people. If you encounter one, back away slowly and call for help if necessary.
Finally, keep an eye out for drop bears - they like to hang around the edge of the wood near the toilets.
These are just a few tips - we hope you have a safe trip!
Nonetheless, practically every beach controlled by the Department of Beaches and Harbors has open facilities or portable toilets. The only exception is when the state government closes a section of beach due to hazardous conditions such as high tide or severe storms.
Beaches are part of public property so they are available to everyone. Generally, there are two types of facilities on beaches: free ones and paid ones. Free beaches have no entrance fees and offer no services other than parking spaces. These are popular with people who want to bring their own food and drink or who just want to relax without spending any money. Paid beaches require you to pay an entry fee which usually covers parking costs and use of some amenities. In addition, they often have coin-operated showers, laundry machines, and snack bars.
Most public beaches have restrooms but these can be difficult to find so it's best to carry your own supplies in case of emergency situations. Some larger beaches may have changing rooms but these are usually only found at paid beaches.
Public beaches are safe places to play if you follow some simple rules. Don't go in the water if you're not wearing a swimsuit (even if it's just your underwear). Never leave your child alone in the bathroom.
