    Packing for the rainforest

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: You can only bring a small holdall on this trip (canoes and huge suitcases are a bad combination) so you’ll need to store the rest of your luggage in Manaus. I imagine most hotels would do this if you’re there beforehand and returning to them, but we transferred to the lodge straight from the airport. This wasn’t a problem however as they have a secure storeroom at the Manaus docks where luggage can be held.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Cotton or linen is best, including at least one shirt with long sleeves, and definitely long trousers for jungle walks (though shorts are fine around the lodge and give you a chance to cool off). Whatever you do, even though travelling light, bring at least one change of everything – the extreme stickiness means that you will want to change several times a day. A light jumper for the evening might be useful too.

    Comfortable walking shoes are a must (good trainers should be fine) and maybe flip-flops for around the lodge and in your hut. And don’t forget a cotton sun-hat or cap.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring everything you’ll need for the few nights you’re here, but try to keep it to a minimum – this isn’t a place to worry about fancy hair-dos, and the men could easily skip a few days shaving (and remember, you won’t have electricity in the mornings so don’t bring your electric razor!)

    Photo Equipment: A must – lots of memory (or film), batteries and ideally a long lens. Although there is electricity in the huts for a few hours each evening, don’t count on being able to recharge batteries, just in case.

    Miscellaneous: Bring a torch for night-time, binoculars, a good book (for down-time in your hammock) and a guide to Amazonian birds would also enhance your experience. If going again I’d also take one of those little battery-operated hand-held fans!

    Things that dry quickly

    by MrRandMcnally Written May 11, 2005

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You will get wet, especially if you are traveling in the rainy season. This is not necisarrily a bad thing, hiking through the Rain forest should involve the risk of rain, just plan accordingly, Fast drying clothese work great.
