Are you wondering on which shoes/ sneakers to carry for your tracking experience, here is a guideline to enhance you prepare for safe tracking with safe gorilla trekking boots.
The best way to explore one of the most famous tourist attractions in Uganda apparently that is Bwindi impenetrable forest national park/Mgahinga national park is preparing the best hiking equipment’s for mountain gorilla tracking due to the fact that the altitude generally differs depending on where the particular mountain gorilla family you have been assigned to track stays.
Through the thick vegetation cover in the mist environment one ought to have light weight hiking boots to offer extra hiking support. Given the fact that the place is at a high altitude, weather changes are dominant in the area experiencing rains in wet and dry seasons which makes the ground slippery and muddy thus without proper fitting hiking boots the track with in the trails in the jungle will be disturbing.
Proper hiking boots for tracking should have but not least to certain things like; being light and fitting to the foot, rain proof, easy to walk with and flexible to give you enough extra support to walk through the muddy trails in the jungle.
At safari vacations & travel services we as well recommend a second choice away from your preferred choice of shoes to wear which are boots (Wellies/ rubber boots) coupled with a pair of stockings since they can prevent you from different species in the forest like snakes once encountered, insects among others once you tuck in your pants and set off for the trail.
The discomfort created by poor hiking boots can as well have an impact on your trail to encounter the primates due to slippery conditions and as well risks of falling and causing injuries and extra harm to your body.
NOTE: you can carry other pairs of shoes along the safari for other extra activities and along the journey to relax your feet and entire body with good comfort.
Consider as well carrying other useful and appropriate items like Sun glasses, African Hat, Rain Jacket, Long sleeved pants/trousers and shirts, insect repellent, warm sweater, camera and gardening gloves. All these will help you have a great moment on your safari to the gorillas.
