Bwindi Forest & Volcanoes region are high altitude areas of over 2,400 meters above sea level.

It is extremely chilly in the early mornings and evenings – warm clothing is therefore necessary.

While trekking, it can rain unexpectedly – it is necessary therefore to have:

  • Water-proof clothing (jacket, with hood + trousers);
  • Waterproof Zip-Lock bags for Cameras/Film/Passports/Money, e.t.c.;
  • Hand Gloves (warm and water-proof), to keep hands off from rain and dripping vegetation;

as well as protect from stinging nettles;

  • Hiking boots – with good mud-grip are most appropriate, especially in wet weather;
  • Gaiters – to protect your trek trouser legs and boots against mud/wetness;
  • Any valuables (carried on the person and not necessary during the trek), may be left with your driver-guide for safe-keeping.
