Why you need a porter during November while on gorilla trekking?

To continue and support the conservation efforts. Most of the local porters found either in Bwindi, Mgahinga, volcanoes, and Virunga National Parks were formally poachers who depended on the forest for the livelihood. However after the introduction of gorilla tourism and gazetting of these forests as national parks, these people now organize themselves to earn a living and this the little money you give them to improve their live hood as well enhancing the conservation of the endangered mountain gorillas. A Porter costs around USD15-20.

Porters give you extra support, hand, and knowledge as most of them know better the surroundings and will help you to walk through the heavy train as they narrate to you the conservation and the general background of the communities around the gorilla’s parks.
