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.
