Please bring with you a rain jacket, long pants drinking water, snacks, good comfortable hiking shoes/boots, sunscreen, a hat, and insect repellent to enhance your experience. The guides will lead your way into the jungle in search of these shy Primates in the group you have been booked for. Do not forget to take your lunch boxes and all the necessary gear to track the rare Mountain Gorillas which is perhaps one of the most exciting wildlife experiences on earth. Gorilla tours usually involve tracking for about 2 to 8 hours sometimes under a heavy rain down-pour but all the same a worthwhile experience. If time allows, on return from the jungle you will go for a village Walk/community visit for a great opportunity to see how the indigenous people live. This delightful moment in Bwindi takes you to learn and take time to appreciate the life of the local people.
