10 Days Uganda Birding Safari – GORILLA TREKKING TIPS:-

  Mountain gorillas sometimes nest far from the start of your gorilla trek, you should ready yourself for a long walk and drink plenty of water.

   Eating, drinking and smoking near the gorillas is forbidden – designated time and place will be communicated.

   Smoking while inside the forest is strictly forbidden

   Bwindi being a tropical forest, it can rain anytime so we encourage you to carry a rain poncho

   Waterproof walking shoes or hiking boots are essential.

   Gardening gloves for protection against stinging plants

   Long trousers and long-sleeved sweaters or shirts while in the forest to avoid insect stings.

   Photography is permitted, although you must not use flash

   Porters are available to help you carry your day pack for a small charge

   As you prepare to come for your Uganda gorilla adventure, please do some exercises so that you prepare your body for gorilla trekking which can last between 3-8 hours

   In case you can’t walk for a very long time, you shouldn’t really worry about not being able to do gorilla trekking because there are potters who can carry you throughout at a small extra cost.

   Carry your sunscreen lotion to keep your skin safe from the tropical heat & sun rays

   When you get to the gorillas, don’t make noise because this agitates the gorillas
