Do not forget to carry with your packed lunch, enough drinking water, rain jacket in case of rain and trekking boots while the rangers will provide you with a walking stick. If you are not sure of your fitness you might hire a porter and pay him a tip to help you carrying the bag.
It is unpredictable how long it will take to find the primates as they freely move into the forest. However, the encounter with the gorillas is undoubtedly a rewarding experience and an unforgettable one! You will watch them play, feed their young ones and move back and forth. After this magical experience, you could retire to the lodge for some rest.
