As in many areas where tourism is an important contributor to the economy it has become customary to offer a small gratuity to local staff at the end of the tour if service has been of a high standard. Naturally this always remains at your discretion.
Gorilla tracking in Bwindi can be challenging, and travellers need to be in shape.
