Our Insight into Your Gorilla Trekking outfit
Preparing for an adventure, like a gorilla trek in Rwanda, can be all consuming – especially when it is time to start packing. Personally, I can get very immersed in the details of a holiday and I love being prepared and planning in advance. My packing lists are meticulous and I love researching the appropriate things to wear to a destination or an experience.
My favourite part of the research is looking at what real people (as in, not styled for a photo) wear on their travels. This makes for more attainable and practical outfit inspiration.
A great hack when planning your wardrobe for a trip is to assess what you already own and then work out what gaps you need to fill with new purchases. More often than not, you can adapt what you own to an experience.
Your existing clothes are often tried and tested and there is nothing worse than uncomfortable clothing, especially when doing something active. More importantly, aim not to wear anything which takes away your focus on your gorilla trek. You are there to look at the animals and not for them to look at you 😉
I have put together some great reference photos in this article of what the team at Timeless Africa wore on our treks and what some of our guests have worn on theirs.
