"Easy" junglers are those that can keep themeselves healthy in the jungle, and have the ability to survive a counterjungler. The easiest "easy" junglers I find are Nunu, Warwick, and Trundle.

Nunu has an internal Smite with Consume that also gives him massive sustain, he has limitless mana with his passive, and he has a great ganking potential with his powerful slow. Nunu's flaw is his pitiful ultimate.....you will NEVER....EVER be able to use it at full power, unless the opponents are stupid. Probably Nunu's best assets ar his ability to use a Double Smite on Dragon or Baron, preventing steals, and his ability to double smite enemy buffs in a counterjungle.

Nunu lacks alot of scaling, so you should aim to win quickly

Warwick has massive sustain through auto attacks on the same target, which comes faster from his sterioid and nuke. Warwick is very slow in his jungle, so he is vulnerable to a good counterjungle.....however, Warwick can win duels with most junglers, as his natural sustain beats his opponents. Your ganking potential is pitiful before level 6, but as soon as you can Duress someone, they are gone.

Warwick maintains a powerful presence through out the game, and will initiate alot of fights.

Trundle is the ultimate in a "safe" jungler, because he has one of the highest sustain rates early on. Spam your Rabid Bite with lifesteal, then feed off of dead enemies with your passive. Your ganking potential is nice, but you lack the ability to actually get a kill alone.....your lanemates need some hard CC to compliment your movespeed and Pillar of Flith. Trundle is the most powerful of the three late game, as he can Agony the enemy tank....and become your teams! Trundle is disruptive as hell, and can easily seperate your enemies team into two pieces.

Trundle is very late game oriented in his combat, so early jungle success will lead you to victory

Nunu's ideal team comp: Capable lanemates who can follow up your movespeed shifts, or be able to help you land your ultimate
Cho'Gath, Annie, Sona, Kog'Maw

Warwick's ideal team comp: Heavy AOE late game, to follow up the Warwick ultimate.
Malphite, Veigar/Kennen, Lulu, Ashe

Trundle's ideal team comp: Heavy cc in the lanes, to set up poweful ganks.
Jarvan, Ahri, Alistar, Varus

Jarvan, Malphite, and Cho'gath are all good junglers in their own right, as well.

I persoanlly found maplhite to be a really good jungle. his granite sheild really minimized the actual damage you take. and hes strong through out the game and his ult is an awesome gank from the bushs.

Amumu is a great jungle, I play him all the time, but he's definitely not forgiving and he's easy to counter.

Olaf is a great jungle and he eats most other Junglers alive if he catches them on his turf or if he jumps them from a bush, BUT his ganks are very hard to pull off.

Fiddles is just hard to play full stop even though he DOES keep himself at high health.

Try WW. Pre-6 ganks are kinda bad, but he works.

I cant believe nobody has posted this.. but Cho'gath. why?
1. his passive means you will always be at fairly decent health when jungling
2. his vorpal spikes mean he clears fairly fast, but with enough time for things to respawn, gank, ect. its near the perfect clear time, in my opinion
3. his scream+knockup combo may not seem like much, but this may give your team enough time to surround, and demolish them (Warning, may not work with stupid teams, or against shaco)
4. People are REALLY scared of his feast ability. if they meet when when at low health in your jungle, its a kill, and a stack.

@Qester

What aspect of jungling is it you find difficult? Sustaining in the jungle and maintaining level (which is typically pretty easy) or successful ganking (which is what seperates a good jungler from a bad jungler)?

If you simply have trouble fighting jungle camps, then you could have a couple different problems- the most obvious being not having the correct runes and masteries- armor yellows and AS reds are almost universal, but you should check individual guides for specific junglers. If you're not lvl 30 yet, this may be the likeliest problem.

On the other hand, if ganking is the thing you have trouble with, then you're not alone. The most common mistake junglers make is they AFK farm the jungle like they're an AD carry, rather than ganking. As a jungler, your primary responsibility is to kill, hamper, or annoy the enemy team, not to kill jungle creeps. The jungle creeps are what allow you to get levels and gold which are necessary for ganking, but you are only farming them to help you kills the enemy team. Learn how to gank, and part of this is learning to communicate with your team, and how to gank.

As far as simply choosing a good jungler, I'd pick up someone who is strong both as a top laner and as a jungler- Shyvana and Udyr come to mind, although pretty much anyone who can jungle well can also top lane (junglers normally have good sustain). So- look at the top laners you already have, look on Solomid.net and see if they're a decent jungler, read the guide, and try them out.

If you want to learn, you can also check out youtube videos, and spectate the highlighted games. Watch their jungle paths, watch where and when they gank.

My favorite junglers: Udyr, Trundle, Nunu. Although there are a LOT of champs than can jungle- chances are you already have one.

Nunu isnt actually carry to win early.His job is to assist the team and he does it very well.Like all tank junglers.He doesnt do damage but he slows alot.You may not be fed but as long your teams fed that all that matters.And will carry through support roles.

The only ones I can really jungle easily with is Jayce and Warwick.

WW can jungle easily without smite. He regains health unlike other junglers.

Jayce has a passive that gains him 6 mana every hit with his W.
(Not to mention he has 2 sets of skills he can use)
