3 Days Uganda Gorilla & Wildlife Safari GORILLA TREKKING TIPS

  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
