What to Pack for Your Brazil Adventure

Travel light! Our experience tells us that the lighter you pack, the happier you will be. Following are some packing guidelines and a checklist to help determine the right amount of gear to bring along.

Simplify your packing—shop at Nat Hab’s online Gear Store for some of the key items recommended for your adventure. Look for this icon in the list below, then go to: www.nathab.com/gear-store to start shopping.

ADVENTURE-SPECIFIC GUIDELINES

  •  Keep in mind, the weather can be both hot and cool during this adventure, so you will need to pack appropriately.
  •  For warm daytime temperatures, lightweight, quick-drying clothing made of synthetic fabric is recommended.
  •  Temperatures will drop in the evenings on our June and July trips. Throughout the adventure, you will more than likely want to wear long pants and a light jacket after the sun goes down.

CLOTHING

Please note that departures in June and July have the potential for very cool nights, so a fleece jacket, hat and gloves are a good idea. For later departures, warm clothes should not be necessary.

  •  Lightweight, “breathable” WATERPROOF rain jacket
    —Your jacket should have a hood and be fully waterproof, not just water resistant.
  •  Lightweight, water-resistant rain pants (highly suggested)
  •  Warm fleece (highly recommended for June, July and August departures—mornings and evenings can be cold!) 
  • 5–6 lightweight, long-sleeved shirts for mosquito and sun protection
  • 4 short-sleeved shirts
    —Bring clothing made of quick-drying materials. Cotton shirts are not recommended for outings.
  • 2–3 pairs of shorts
  • 2–3 pairs of comfortable, lightweight pants
    —Zip-off pants are perfect for cool mornings and warmer afternoons, and they eliminate the need for extra shorts.
  • Socks
  • Swimsuit
  • Comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes for hikes
  • Extra pair of comfortable shoes or sandals
    —Sandals should not be used for outings, but they are fine for relaxing at the lodge. Shoes tend to get wet and dirty on walks, so it is nice to have clean, dry footwear to change into at the end of the day. 

ADDITIONAL ITEMS 

  • Cash
    —For discretionary gratuities (you may want to bring envelopes for discreet presentation).
    —For personal spending (souvenirs, Internet use, or food and beverages not included in your trip fee).
  • Small, water-resistant daypack
    —To carry gear during outings.
  • Headlamp or small, powerful flashlight
  • Binoculars
    —We strongly recommend that each traveler bring his or her own pair of binoculars, as they will be used continuously while on hikes and drives. If possible, invest in a good quality pair, which will definitely enhance your wildlife-viewing experience. Waterproof binoculars are ideal in case we experience rain on outings.
  • Water bottle
  • Hairdryer (optional)
    —Hairdryers are not provided at all of our accommodations.
  • Sun hat (with brim for sun and a strap for wind during skiff rides)
  • Bandana or neck buff (highly recommended)
  • Sunglasses (with U.V. filter and secure strap)
  • Earplugs
  • Toiletries
  • Insect repellent
    —Avoid 100% DEET products, as they can damage camera lenses.
  • Sunscreen & lip balm (at least SPF15)
  • Small medical kit
  • Prescription glasses/contact lenses
  • Battery-operated alarm clock or wristwatch
  • Reusable waterproof bags
    —Bring several sizes. These are great for wet or dirty clothing and to protect camera equipment from the elements.
  • Small Portuguese/English dictionary
  • Warm hat and gloves (for June and July departures)
