What To Pack
The secret of success on tour
We recommend the use of a comfortable and sturdy travel backpack or duffel bag; whichever is easiest for you to carry. A good size daypack is also essential for hikes and day excursions.
We strongly recommend to only use biodegradable soaps and shampoos while camping to protect the local water systems.
Your clothing should be easy to wash and dry and should preferably not need ironing. Avoid synthetics, which can be very uncomfortable in hot weather.
You should pack the following
Kit for all weather conditions including:
We recommend lightweight cotton clothing. long trousers and t-shirts may be more appropriate. Let’s not forget thin towels, sun hats, sunscreen, insect repellent and leech socks. For most tours, bring along your swimwear, as there are chances to slake off the tropical heat with a dip at a river or waterfall. Moreover, we recommend you bring light rainwear such as raincoats or waterproof jackets because there will be encounters with rain. Please make sure you have something dry to change into and wrap all your clothes and belongings in a plastic/zip-lock bag when packing.
