Our region is much closer to the airport in Kigali (Rwanda) than to Entebbe (Uganda), therefore choose the former if you are flying here primarily for trekking. We can pick you up and organise the rest of your tour.
The weather in highland Uganda is typically a mixed bag - take warm sweaters and shorts, a raincoat and sun-block. Even though you can generally walk around in any shoes, soles with a good grip are advisable. We will be in remote rural areas with no electricity so your own source of light is a good investment. For more privacy you are free to bring your own tent. A personal first aid kit may be handy. (If you have an iPad or a Mac, consider purchasing our award-winning Gorilla Highlands Interactive eBook that offers an extensive interactive guide for what to pack.)
You can swim safely in all lakes of southwestern Uganda, so pack your swimsuit for sure.
Because the families we visit do not have guest accommodation, we camp in spacious tents (we may need your help in putting them up and down). We arrange for comfortable foam mattresses to sleep on and blankets for additional cover. Your own sleeping bag is optional but advisable. (Accommodation upgrades to lodges/hotels are possible during most treks.)
During the trips we do not economise on food. You are likely to be impressed by the quality of local cooking, the richness of our breakfasts and picnics and the excellent cuisine of the restaurants we visit. We provide mineral water, loads of it.
While our trips are all-inclusive, you may want to bring some shillings with you for local crafts, extra drinks and other personal needs.
Porters are not really needed during our Lake Bunyonyi canoe treks (most of your luggage travels by boat) but they are available and recommended for the multi-day Gorilla Highlands Trails trips.
We use big and stable dugout canoes. There has never been a case of a boat tipping over.
