Rwanda Tours – Important Tips

The Volcanoes area is located at an altitude of over 2,400 meters above sea level. It is extremely chilly in the early mornings and evenings – warm clothing is therefore necessary. While trekking, it can rain unexpectedly – it is necessary therefore to have:

  • Water-proof clothing (jacket, with hood + trousers)
  • Water-proof Zip-Lock bags for Cameras/Film/Passports/Money, e.t.c.
  • Hand Gloves (warm and water-proof), to keep hands off from rain and dripping vegetation; as well as protect from stinging nettles
  • Hiking boots – with good mud-grip are most appropriate (shoes/boots of clothing material will certainly become wet and uncomfortable
  • Gaiters – to protect your trek trouser legs and boots against mud/wetness
  • Sunglasses are not necessary during the trek
  • Any valuables (carried on the person and not necessary during the trek), may be entrusted with your driver-guide for safe-keeping for the duration of the trek
