WHAT TO BRING TO WEAR ?

Whichever family group you visit, you may have to walk a long distance in steep, muddy conditions, possibly in heavy rain.

Sturdy shoes are essential, proper high-ankled walking boots are preferable

gaiters or long socks are a good idea in order that you can tuck in your pants/trousers

Pants/trousers should be thick in order to protect from insects and stinging nettles

A long sleeved over-shirt is useful against the morning chill, insects and stinging nettles

Gardening gloves can be very useful when climbing steep slopes

A poncho or other waterproof jacket may be worthwhile

 

Sunscreen

A hat

At least two litres of bottled water

Sufficient covers to protect you camera gear from the elements

Binoculars are optional, but especially useful for birders

The gorillas are thoroughly used to people, so it makes little difference whether you wear bright or muted colours, although out of respect for your fellow travellers you really should make the effort to wear appropriate clothes for the forest ... bright and inappropriately dressed people can really mess up photos and videos.
