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
