We recommend the following clothing and equipment for tracking the gorillas: Warm clothes, including a fleece or light wool sweater, moisture-wicking undergarments, lightweight wool socks, long-sleeved shirt Strong waterproof walking boots (comfortable for going up and down steep hills) Sturdy walking trousers A breathable lightweight rain poncho or ‘parka’ with a rain hat Gloves to grip vegetation (inexpensive gardening gloves work well) Sunglasses, sunscreen and sun hat Torch A good supply of rechargeable camera batteries and/or fast filmgo Binoculars A small backpack to carry water and a packed lunch
It is best to wear layers of clothing as temperatures fluctuate. Early mornings on the mountains can be cold, although as the sun rises in the sky, and you climb, you will start to feel the heat. It rains often, generally in the afternoons.
The ranger guides will make you a walking stick, if needed, or you can borrow one from your lodge. You will find the walking sticks come in very useful when climbing up and down slippery slopes.
