Gorilla Trekking Gear

When embarking on a gorilla trekking adventure, it is important to have the right gear to ensure
your comfort, safety, and enjoyment of the experience. Here is a list of essential items you should
consider bringing with you:

Hiking Boots: Invest in a sturdy pair of waterproof hiking boots with good ankle support. The
terrain can be challenging and muddy, so reliable footwear is crucial.

Lightweight Clothing
: Dress in layers to accommodate changes in temperature throughout the
day. Opt for lightweight, breathable, and quick-drying fabrics. Long-sleeved shirts and long
pants will protect you from insects and vegetation.

Rain Gear: Pack a waterproof jacket or rain poncho to protect yourself from rain showers or
dense vegetation. Consider bringing waterproof pants as well.

Daypack: Carry a comfortable daypack to hold your essentials, such as water, snacks, camera,
binoculars, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a small first aid kit.

Gloves: It is recommended to wear sturdy gardening or work gloves to protect your hands while
hiking through vegetation or grabbing onto branches for stability.

Hat and Sunglasses: Bring a wide-brimmed hat to shield your face from the sun and sunglasses
to protect your eyes from the strong sunlight.

Insect Repellent: Use a reliable insect repellent to ward off mosquitoes and other bugs. Look for
one that contains DEET or another effective repellent ingredient.

Water and Snacks: Stay hydrated throughout the trek by carrying a sufficient amount of water.
Pack high-energy snacks like granola bars or trail mix to keep your energy levels up.

Camera and Binoculars
: Capture the incredible moments and observe gorillas from a distance
with a good camera and a pair of binoculars. Make sure to respect the guidelines regarding flash

Portable Charger
: To ensure your electronic devices remain charged throughout the trek, bring a
portable charger or extra batteries.

Remember to check with your tour operator for any additional gear recommendations specific to
the location and season you will be visiting. Respect the guidelines provided by the park authorities
to minimize disturbance to the gorillas and preserve their natural habitat.
