# Comfortable clothes and shoes for an easy movement during the safari. We advice colours in harmony with the jungle, avoid flashing colours. During the winter months, from November to February, sweaters and jackets are needed because the mornings and evenings are cold. During the monsoon months, from June to August, one should carry waterproof jackets and an extra pair of shoes. Moreover, The Terai jungles are infested with leeches hence one should carry insects repellent to keep them away. Salt or a lighted cigarette will make them fall off.
