A Guide To Responsible Survival Camping

31 August  |  At Discovery Village

Camping is an experience that is all about you and nature; breathing in the fresh air, listening to the soothing sounds of the wild and feeling that wondrous breeze on your face while you take a break from your chaotic week.

However, there is a lot of potential for things to go wrong. Camping can be a great experience with no risk when the following tips are kept in mind while preparing for your trip. While being in nature seems a little archaic or prehistoric, and a daunting prospect, it can be very rejuvenating or enlightening. Responsible survival camping is very achievable even in this modern world.

  1. Remember your first aid kit

It is important to remember that nature is as wild as it is fun. Even if you are camping near the adventure resorts in Bangalore, bacteria can cause big problems. A first aid kit can go a long way to make sure camping remains lots of fun. Small cuts and bruises don’t always remain so over time, so treat the cut with your first aid kit, and then you will have nothing to tarnish the amazing camping experience.

  1. Take a trash bag

Being responsible includes leaving your camping area the way it was. The erosion of natural habitats and ecosystems by human activity is common knowledge. However, while most of the activities seem distant and impersonal to us as individuals, littering a natural area is within our control. Why trash something that is as beautiful as the resorts in Nandi Hills? If the previous camper made his presence felt after he has left the campsite, it would probably ruin your experience. Responsible camping includes making sure you leave the campsite as you found it, clean and pristine.

  1. Be aware of your surroundings

Noise can disturb much more than people. It can disturb animals and even plants. While having a good time is what camping is about, being responsible is too. If you’re choosing a campsite, make sure you’re a little further away from a river, to preserve the ecosystem that is fragile. If you have tents near the resorts in Masinagudi Mudumalai, make sure you move every two days so you don’t put too much stress on one small area of land. If the campsite tends to attract wild animals, this will help you evade a situation you would rather not face.

  1. Do your homework

Camping is not always considered as just ‘survival of the fittest’. It could also be a family outing in Bangalore, Kerala or the North East. Research the site you are going to. If it is the season for migration of large packs of animals, choose not to go to that particular site at that particular time. Listen to the experts or the locals of the area and heed their advice. Look for animal markers to judge when it is a safe time to camp in the wilderness in particular areas.
