2 Always have a reliable compass so you can follow any given directions without reference to your immediate surroundings

3 Have a buddy system: do not go jungle trekking alone

4 Get to know the trail first (e.g. the length of the trail, the level of difficulty, the entrance & exit points) before starting your journey

5 Get a reliable map with clear signs and directions of the trail

6 Inform family members of your 'trekking plans (e.g. duration of the trip, expected time to be out of trait)

7 Get a guide if you are not familiar with the treks

8 If the trip is divided into smaller groups, allow each group to have a walkie talkie, if possible

9 For big groups, have a leader in front and two sweepers at the back. Sweepers ensure no one is left behind
