ADVICE FOR GORILLA TREKKING
Homestead Tours and Safaris can purchase your Gorilla Tracking Permits for you, but will first require payment in full for the Permits in order to do this.
Consider booking two Gorilla Tracking Permits (on different days). You are allowed an hour with the gorillas and your first trek will pass in a flash. A second trek will allow you to sit back and really enjoy the experience.
Take good sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots - the walk can be through thick vegetation and over steep, slippery, uneven and even boggy ground. You will be lent a long stick to help you.
Perhaps take a pair of gardening gloves to project your hands from nettles and thorns.
It is advisable to wear long trousers, a long sleeved shirt and a waterproof jacket.
Hire a porter - they are a huge support and will help carry your bags as well as provide a stabilizing arm on tricky stretches.
Gorilla tracking can take anything from 40 minutes to ten hours. As a rule, you should expect to walk a long distance in steep, muddy and wet conditions before you encounter any gorillas.
