Surviving In The Wilderness

Spread the love

Hmm…, I think I am psychic. I can see that you have a knack for travel and love anything to do with wilderness. I’m just joking; you would not be reading this if you are not an explorer.

However, our love for travelling will not last long if we do not know how to face the journey. So, how are we going to survive in the wilderness?


Whether it is work or play, the key to success is proper planning.

First, you need to gather information about the place that you are planning to visit. If it is a popular hideout, there will be a lot of data on what areas to avoid and about the common dangers that will be faced by a traveller. However, if you are a daring explorer, you may want to travel to places which are not much explored. Either way, gather as much information as possible, especially about the weather conditions so that you can get ready accordingly. 


Once the place has been picked, you need to decide on the things to take with you. You may consider buying an earthquake survival kit NZ which is sure to contain all the essentials or if you are experienced, you may prepare one for yourself.

Decide on camping gear if you are planning to spend the night and pack proper clothes. If you are visiting a tropical place, do not forget insect repellent. Of course, you need other essentials such as a knife, flashlight, etc.

As a general rule, you should be equipped with a first aid kit which includes bandages, plasters, a pair of scissors, etc.

You should also carry a pot or a like item to cook food and fire starting equipment. You are only visiting the wilderness but you are not a cannibal, right? Oh well, maybe you are capable of starting a fire by rubbing two sticks together but, in case that does not work for some reason, you should have a backup plan.

If carrying water is too much for you and you are certain that there are water sources where you are going, you may carry water purification tablets instead of heavy water bottles. These tablets are included in over the shelf disaster kits so you do not have run around looking for them.


I hope you have now gained sufficient knowledge on how to survive in the wilderness and what you need for that. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and enjoy.

P.S. Do not forget to post some amazing photographs.
