Tips for Safe Gorilla Tracking Safari:

Remember to get a permit before you arrive on your Gorilla Trekking Safari
One of the most important aspects to remember if you are planning a gorilla trekking safari is that you need to obtain a permit to see the gorillas.

Be prepared for any weather on your Gorilla Trekking Safari
There is a good chance the weather will be both hot and humid as well as slightly chilly and rainy on the same day, reason enough to be prepared for varying weather conditions on your Gorilla trekking safari. Safari experts recommend wearing layered clothing that can be adjusted according to the temperature. Make allowances for rain by packing a waterproof jacket or coat for your Gorilla trekking.

Waterproofing for your camera and absolutely no flash
Temperamental weather conditions require you to safely waterproof your camera on your Gorilla trekking safari. Water housing or casing is essential in protecting your equipment.

Train before you leave and know your fitness levels
Volcanoes National Park is high in altitude which will make Gorilla trekking much harder, even for experienced hikers.

Go Gorilla Trekking during the dry season
Tracking down mountain gorillas isn’t limited to a season and you can visit any time of year. It's believed that you will just have a more enjoyable experience in the drier months as everything is a little more accessible due to there being less rain and less mud.

Respect the Gorillas’ space on your Gorilla Trekking Safari
While the Mountain gorilla population is habituated and gorillas are non-aggressive and shy, they are still wild animals. Respecting their space ensures that no one gets hurt on their Gorilla trekking Safari. Accompanying you on your Gorilla trekking journey will be experienced guides.
