Do’s and Don’ts in the Jungle
2016-05-18

While partaking in a jungle safari, it is extremely important to follow a certain code of conduct so that one does not spoil nature’s beauty and does not disturb our furry friends. Here is a list of do’s and don’ts of a jungle safari, which one needs to keep in mind.

 

Do’s

 

Right Dressing

It is advisable to wear clothes which cover the arms and legs so that if one comes in contact with insects or wild animals, he does not catch an allergy. Wearing layers of clothing is also a good idea.

 

Blend your Clothes with Nature

Stay away from loud colors, bold prints like polka dots or noisy trinkets. Animals might find it disturbing, get scared or attract unnecessary attention. Blending with the environment is actually the basic idea.

 

Stay Calm

Be composed and calm when inside the jungle. Unnecessary excitement might keep them away from you.

 

Stay in Right Company

It is extremely important that you should stick to your group, headed by a naturalist.

 

Pack Light

Packing light is important. Only pack what you need inside the jungle. Jungle safaris can be tiring; do not carry anything that isn’t essential.

 

Medical Aid

If any one of you is allergic to dust or animal fur, do not forget to carry your medication.

 

Click Click

One doesn’t partake in jungle safaris every now and then. Do not forget to carry a good camera so that you can click some good photographs of the flora and fauna. What if you spot the big cat!

 

Other Necessary Items

Raincoat, mosquito repellant, antiseptic creams, water bottle, band-aids, a small torch, first-aid kit, personal hygiene products and similar kind of items.

Do not forget to carry sunhats, sunglasses and sunscreen to keep you safe from sun rays and sunburns. Wear covered comfortable shoes along with socks. Wearing exposed footwear might be a bad idea.

 

Don’ts

 

Don’t Feed the Animals

Restrict yourself from feeding animals. Their behavior cannot be predicted and this might prove to be harmful for you and for them.

 

Refrain from Littering

The jungle is home to the wild animals, thus, it is best that you do not litter your garbage here and there in their home.

 

Stay Vigilant

Stay alert and avoid an ignorant attitude. If you see any visitor or staff doing any wrong, report it as soon as it is possible.

 

Closeness Could be Harmful

Do not get too close to animals in order to observe them closely. They can either get scared or you can attract them towards you. Do not try to be too friendly with the wild in the jungle.

 

No Loud Talks

The forest is no place for long talks or conversation. Keep your talks limited and that too in low tones.

 

No Place for Souvenirs

Please do not get down from your jeep or elephant in the jungle to pick up bird feathers, leaves or stones.

 

Child Trouble

It is wiser not to bring small children or infants into the jungle as it is sometimes not possible to keep them calm. The animals may shy away from you.

 

Stay Calm During Photography

Please do not create any disturbance for the wild animals while shooting videos or clicking photographs. Keep calm and turn off the flash on your camera.

 

Fire Alert

Stay away from using any combustible substances during your jungle safari.

 

Cellphone Nuisance

It is advisable to keep your cellphones in your hotel room. If you are carrying them with you inside the jungle, keep them switched off or on silent mode.

 

Please remember that you are inside the jungle to observe the animals, while they are inside their house. Do not agitate them by throwing stones at them or doing antics to attract them.
