Booking for Gorilla tracking:

We advice our clients interested in Gorilla tracking to book for a Gorilla permit at least 3 months in advance to ensure that requested dates are available. This is because of high number of trackers. Please note that Gorilla tracking can be done in Rwanda and Congo as well if permits can’t be got in Uganda at the time of booking. The track experience starts at 8:30am local time and can take three to eight hours.

What to bring:
- Wear jungle shoes suitable for steep muddy slopes and carry a rain jacket because the park is often wet.
- Come with ear plugs for those who feel uncomfortable with jungle sounds.
- Carry rain gear, sunscreen lotion, a hat (as the weather is unpredictable) and insect repellant
- Carry packed lunch.
