Gorilla trekking attire and photography

Jump to last reply

In September I'm going to Uganda on a trip that includes two treks to the mountain gorillas. Since I'll be traveling later in Tanzania, I don't want to lug around anything except what I absolutely must have. So, I wonder: how wet is that trek--do I need waterproof pants as well as jacket? Must I really have high-top boots or will very rugged, waterproof hiking shoes do?

And on photography: I'm taking a SLR digital camera, a Canon 20D. I'm set with lenses but have some concern about the light since one cannot use flash. Any tips?
