Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Will there be a guide to help us locate the gorillas?

      The trackers are specially trained to find the gorillas and do go ahead of you on the trek to ensure the best outcome of viewing the gorillas.

    • How long will the trek last?

      Tucan have advised to expect to trek for up to eight hours - as the gorillas do move over night the distance can be unpredictable. It will change from tour to tour so I'm unable to advise how often it takes 8 hours to see gorillas.

    • Will sleeping mats be provided?

      Sleeping mats will be provided by Tucan Travel, however a sleeping bag liner is also a good idea to keep your sleeping bag clean and use as a sheet when the weather is hot. The weather in Africa can be varied and is not always as warm as you may think, especially in areas that are at higher altitude, so a warm sleeping bag (3-4 season) is recommended.
