Gorilla trekking guides tip
These are the rangers and guides, who will take you through the whole experience of gorilla trekking in the forest, we advise that in the interesting of gorilla trekking as an activity each person should tip between 7-20 dollars in a group of 8 Pax and there are central tipping boxes at the park headquarters or you give the tip to the head guide who will later divide it amongst the group that involved in the activity.
Hotel staff is the waitresses and waiters, and many others; we advise that each guest tip 3-5 dollars per stay and should be placed in a central tipping box so that all can share at the end of the day. As there are more people who work behind the scenes and also take part in providing services.

Tips to porters
If you happen to take a porter for your gorilla trekking experience, kindly note that an extra tip on top of the 15 dollars is always welcome, anything from 3-5 dollars or more is recommendable.
