For those experienced traveler, they can enjoy the jungle camping for a long months. Escape from the hot, humid, and crowded lifestyle.

Jungles are always wet, damp and full of mosquitoes. Forget about reptiles! But the taste of food cocked in the jungles without using any modern technology is superb.

Three things you should never forget to bring in jungle camping are – knives, matches box and torchlight.

Raincoat

In jungle, no one knows when it is going to rain, so get a raincoat.

Footwear

Throw out all notions of keeping your feet dry. Here, you want shoes that maximize space and minimize the amount of water they’ll soak up and retain.

Football cleats work great in the mud, not so much on rocks or wet pavement. For this take an approach shoes, which worked great on those slippery rocks.

Buy a quality pair of lightweight merino socks.

T Shirt

No cotton in jungle camping. Cotton T shirt just soak up water and sweat, then hold it and never dry. Buy some good quality merino item.

Don’t worry for wear and tears of the cloth. They are your good companion in jungle camping. Merino is naturally anti-microbial, meaning it won’t stick even if you get sweaty in it. It provides quickly drying your skin even after getting completely soaked.

Pants

Try shorts just to maximize ventilation and freedom of movement.

Jackets

Try for waterproof jackets. This is the best option for jungle camping. Select jackets which have permeable membranes which is a breathable, synthetic fabric that repels water. Prefer hoods either attached or as a zippered option and various venting features.

Gloves

You need a glove to protect your hands and will appreciate the extra grip a pair of light gloves provides.

Tent

Tent is an important item for your jungle camping. Look for a compact tent which are convenient to buckle up with the rucksack between the main and shoe compartment, while trekking.

Opt for those tent with the air-insulation.

Now, explore the jungle. Wander in the forest and be with nature!
