WHAT TO WEAR FOR A GORILLA SAFARI
Gorilla tracking involves hiking through the thick
forest vegetation and therefore hiking boots will help make your movement more
Long sleeved Shirt/T-shirt and some long pair trousers
These help to protect your arms and legs from the
itchy and wet vegetation as you track the mountain Gorillas.
This will help especially when the weather changes unexpectedly
because the Gorillas live in a tropical rain forest where it can rain any time
Pair of Binoculars
These help you to have a close/clearer view especially
the birds and other small forest creatures that may be far.
Camera and extra batteries
A memory of the trip can only be captured by your
camera for pictures of the giant silverback and other gorillas as you watch
them go about their lives in the forest.
Snacks and drinking water.
Gorilla tracking takes 30minutes to 8 hours as you
walk through the forest trails in search for a particular gorilla family. You
will need enough water for drinking and snacks to avoid starving in the wild in
case the journey takes longer than expected.
Hut and sun glasses
The hut protects your head from the hot sun while the
sun glasses protect your eye from the same. Please make sure you carry them for
your own safety.
