It is recommended to wear dim color clothes that camouflages easily with the surrounding during jungle safari. Bright and eye catching colored clothes (yellow, white, pink, orange, light blue, light green etc) are easily visible and thus greater risk of wildlife attack. Light and comfortable shoes are recommended instead of bulky shoes during the jungle walk. Light weight shoes are suggested to minimize the sound production while walking over the dry leaves and branches in jungle.
