The choice of shoes can make or ruin your safari! Find out why and how.
If your safari in Uganda involves walking safaris, gorilla tracking or chimpanzee tracking, you are advised to get a pair of light hiking boots that can comfortably support your ankles while hiking. Sturdy walking shoes also work for some people on gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda, but if you are walking across an uneven terrain, you will love the ankle support that the light-weight hiking boots give.
Travelers also need light weight hiking boots for volcano Hiking for example hikes in the Rwenzori mountain foothills, Mgahinga gorilla national park and Mountain Elgon national park.
All the safari shoes you pack for your Uganda safari should be well worn such that you won’t be uncomfortable in the unbroken stiff shoes. Buy these shoes so early such that you can wear them and get used to them before your safari trip.
