When you are in a jungle, there are many things that can cause you harm and make your trek so much more difficult. Having the right knife or machete can make it easier to cut through weeds, plants, and brush.

Binoculars

When you are in a place that you do not know, it is always best to see what is ahead of you before you start heading in that direction. Jungles are full of wild animals, obstacles, and other dangers that, if identified in advance, can save you a lot of trouble and injury. Get a pair of binoculars or monoculars that has night vision as this will give you a better view if you are moving at night.

Clothing

When you are in the jungle, survival is crucial, and while there are bigger threats like snakes, bears and other wild creatures, the ones that are small and cannot be seen easily are what can be dangerous. Mosquitoes, bees, wasps, ants, spiders and other insects can sting or bite you, and you will not know until it is too late. Wearing clothing that can create a good barrier between these insects and your body can mean the difference between a great adventure and one that is cut short. One more thing that is important is the right shoes which have a good grip and can shield you from insects and other elements.

While a torch is great when you are moving, you must take a suitable lamp that you can use when you set up camp for the night. There are many models available so make sure you select one that will last you the duration of your trip.…
