Overall, packing the right gear can make all the difference on an Amazon Rainforest tour. With these essential items, you'll be prepared to explore the jungle and make memories that will last a lifetime.


The Amazon Rainforest is known for its abundant insect life, so it's important to protect yourself from mosquito bites and other insect bites. Bring a good quality insect repellent that is natural based, and apply it liberally throughout the day.

Natural based repellant as its benefits:
- Safer for your skin: Natural-based insect repellents are often made with plant-based ingredients, such as citronella, lemongrass, and eucalyptus, which are less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions than chemical-based repellents like DEET.
- Better for the environment: Chemical-based insect repellents can have negative impacts on the environment, including water and air pollution. Natural-based repellents, on the other hand, are typically biodegradable and have a lower impact on the environment.
- Effective against a range of insects: Many natural-based insect repellents are effective at repelling a range of insects, including mosquitoes, ticks, and flies, which can be important if you're traveling to an area with a high risk of insect-borne diseases.
- Pleasant scent: Natural-based insect repellents often have a pleasant, natural scent, which can be more appealing than the strong, chemical smell of some synthetic repellents.


With the hot and humid climate of the rainforest, it's important to protect your skin from the sun. Bring a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and apply it regularly throughout the day.


The Amazon Rainforest is home to many nocturnal animals, so a headlamp is a great way to explore the jungle after dark. Look for a lightweight and waterproof headlamp with a long battery life. Here are some options that range from everyday use to hardcore.


A good pair of binoculars is essential for spotting wildlife and birds that may be hidden in the trees. Look for a pair that is lightweight, waterproof, and has a magnification of at least 8x.

With so many unique sights and experiences to capture, a high-quality camera is a must-have on any Amazon Rainforest tour. Consider bringing a waterproof and shockproof camera to protect against the rain and humidity. A wide-angle lens is also great for capturing panoramic views of the jungle.

For birdwatching tours, Photo Safari and Herping Tours
For these tours we strongly suggest DSLRs cameras. Each person has their brand preferences for the bodies (Sony, Canon, Nikon or Olympus) but lenses are a must for the best pictures. Because on how far can birds and monkeys we recommend lenses that can reach 400-600 mm and a teleconverter will also come handy. For macro pictures 70-90 mm lenses work the best.
