What to Bring for Gorilla Tracking

Good walking boots, wet weather clothing and warm layers for the evenings – it gets cold and damp at this altitude.

The sun is still fierce during the day – even when overcast – so be sure to still wear sunscreen and a sun hat. You may also want to bring waterproof bags to protect cameras and other equipment when hiking. Water and snacks will be provided.

Note on accommodation

This itinerary is based on a trip to Buhoma Section which is the main sector in the park but can be adjusted according to the location of the gorilla family to be tracked.
