In The Middle Of A Rainforest


Camping out under a starry sky, in the middle of a tropical lowland rainforest is a great way to enjoy the nature. It is a unique opportunity to experience the mystery, comradeship, and adventure of an expedition into a primeval tropical environment. It is an invitation to the unexpected, a chance to accomplish something very exciting, and explore strengths you never knew you had.

First, let’s learn some facts about Amazon rainforest. The Amazon rainforest or the Amazon Jungle, is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon basin of South America. The name Amazon is said to arise from a war Francisco de Orellana fought with the Tapuyas and other tribes. The women of the tribe fought alongside the men, as was their custom. Orellana derived the name Amazonas from the Amazons of Greek mythology, described by Herodotus and Diodorus. As the largest tract of tropical rainforest in the Americas, the Amazonian rainforests have unparalleled biodiversity.

One of the best things about tropical rain forest travel is an absence of need for warm clothes

You will need to bring a comfortable medium-sized pack, jungle-type boots, appropriate clothing, a comfort kit and an army style poncho. Something else that I always take with me when jungle trekking is mosquito net clothing. You can get a hooded jacket made of the netting as well as trousers and gloves, so that when you’re actually walking the mozzies can’t get at you.
