Words can’t describe the feeling that rushs through you when you first lock eyes with a giant silverback. The experience exceeds all expectations and should be firmly planted at the top of everyone’s list.
Most of the do’s and don’ts of gorillas trekking will be given to you at the briefing before however here are our top six dos and Don’ts for gorilla trekking.
1. Do bring hiking boots
Gorilla trekking is not just a walk in the park. Each morning the trackers will go ahead of you and go to the place where they last saw the gorillas, from here they will track them to where they have moved to. They are wild animals and the lodges have absolutely no control over where they move to. Treks can take anything from 2 hours to 10 hours and in the rainforest, the terrain can be steep and slippy so you must bring hiking boots.
