- Compass, map or GPS smartphone
These are the basic items to avoid getting lost. Finding your way in nature is not an easy task. If you’re going to a remote area bring an emergency radio, available at the Red Cross store.
- Suitable clothing and impermeable shoes
The weather is somewhat unpredictable at times, so pack up thinking about the most extreme conditions you may find along the way. Check the meteorologic patterns of the region you’re going and be prepared for sudden climatic changes. Bring a shemagh tactical scarf, too. This is a jack of all trades.
- A good backpack
It is important to choose your backpack to travel, so be sure to get the best your budget can afford. Roomy, tactical backpacks with many pockets are preferable. In addition, it must be adapted to your body for maximum comfort. Its capacity will be proportional to the duration of your journey.
- A sleeping bag
The bottom line is that it is waterproof and insulated. They are bulky but worthy of being carried around.
- A flashlight
Too often forgotten, it is essential when the night begins to fall. A LED head flashlight would be ideal because it leaves both hands free. Do not forget extra batteries (or opt for a solar led lamp if time permits)!
- A gourd
Remember to bring enough water, and plan Aquatab tablets and/or filters if your reserves come to term.
- Non-perishable food
Lyophilized food is the best option. Easy to pack and to prepare, you’ll have hot food on demand. Also think about nuts, protein bars, and snack trail mix.

- A knife and a multi-tool plier
It must be solid because you will use it for different things: whether to eat, cut, saw etc …

It should contain disinfectant, scissors, bandages, and compresses but also tweezers and sterile needles. In addition, sunscreen and sunburn lotion. Also, remember to pack a survival blanket and analgesics.
Post-it mental: Be aware of the drugs policy in the country you’ll visit. Some countries are really strict and travelers are sometimes arrested or even sentenced to death because of legal drugs such as analgesics, blood pressure medication etc. For more information check the country-specific information website or other official sources.
- Anti-mosquito and anti-mosquito bite lotion
This item will save you a lot of itching and sleepless nights spent fighting with our insect friends. You should pack malaria pills if it applies to the region you will visit. Also, remember to start taking the pills 1-2 days before traveling to the area where malaria transmission occurs.
