The Plain Options To Go In The Koyna Forest Resort

What should you pay attention to before going on a jungle expedition? Here are 10 tips to get started! Before leaving, the doctor of the travel unit will advise you a series of vaccines according to the countries and regions that you will visit. It will also take into account the activities you plan to do and the way you travel. But you might want to change programs along the way. So, before you go headlong, take the time to think about the risks to your health.

Learn to live in a humid climate

In the jungle, you have to expect it to rain. It’s hot and humid, and when you’re not used to it, it can be difficult.

Generally the outings are on a half-day, leaving early in the morning to return at noon, etc. During our stay in the jungle, we enjoyed every return to camp to shower, because with the heat it was, cooling (and washing!) was vital.

Given this particular climate, think before you take out your electronic and photographic equipment. Moreover, in many jungle dwellings, electricity is not available all day. Find out on the spot for hours, to make sure your camera battery is ready to charge at the right time. With the Forest Escapes Koyna these are the matters that you will have to be aware of.

Protect yourself from mosquitoes

Protect yourself properly: do not go on an expedition without long clothes. Choose lightweight, breathable fabrics that dry quickly.

And above all, do not dry them out: caterpillars love the smell of clothes full of sweat (everyone’s tastes!) And come to lay eggs. The problem is that once you put on your clothes, you risk that baby caterpillars grow under your skin.

Before you go to the jungle, get yourself a good repellent (DEET), and enough. You will have to put it back often because of the humidity, the perspiration and the showers. Above all, protect yourself well at nightfall.

Be equipped

In addition to long clothes, take a good backpack: one that fits well, not too heavy, breathable in the back and waterproof. Also, plan a good rain jacket, and not a wax that sticks to the skin as soon as it is wet and keeps all the heat of your body, without letting the skin breathe. Also find out if boots are provided on site: it is essential to go for a walk in the jungle off the slopes.

Avoid mosquito hunting

To avoid mosquito hunting in your home, it’s simple: limit indoor / outdoor transitions and be brief! This is one of the first rules we learn when we arrive in the jungle. Unfortunately during our stay, many disrespectful tourists did not notice and liked to stop at the door of the dining room to discuss … the door open, of course!

Be sure to have a mosquito net

Is your future home in the jungle well equipped against mosquitoes: are there mosquito nets on the windows and another one above your bed?

Use common sense

Use common sense, observe how the locals live, follow the safety instructions , do not go alone, follow the tracks, do not touch what you do not know and do not underestimate the small animals because they are sometimes (often?) the most dangerous.

In the same way, respect the animals, the wild ones as those collected by the camp to reinsert them in the nature: do not run after them (even if it is sometimes tempting). If they want, some will approach you on their own (even refuse to leave your shoulders!).
