Having the right Gorilla trekking footwear could give you a better trekking experience compared to if you had the wrong shoes packed up for your Gorilla trekking in either Uganda or Rwanda – both gorilla treks require somewhat similar gorilla trekking footwear.

Your Gorilla trekking footwear has got to be well worn prior to your Gorilla Trek – you do not want to buy a brand new pair of hiking boots that could cause blisters during your long gorilla trekking.

Many forums and or tour operators may suggest you use rubber boots like local rangers and trekkers do here – Their feet are accustomed to the wear and tear, and lack of support, we say stick to your water proof hiking/gorilla trekking footwear.

Our recommendation is that if your travel itinerary does include; Gorilla Trekking, Chimpanzee tracking, Mountain climbing or hiking – whatever you want to call it, we still say use your water proof hiking shoes – Not brandy new pairs as these will cause blisters on your feet…ouch!! -very painful.
