If you choose to go camping on your own, make sure you are familiar with the place and you're fully prepared for anything that could happen. Asking tips from an experienced camper or tour guide (or going with them!) is highly recommended for your safety.

But there are two important things you need to remember: have the best time of your life with nature; and protect the environment wherever you go!
