Are you very old but want to trek gorillas in Uganda or Rwanda but worried of how you will make it to a given group of mountain gorillas? Encounter Africa Safaris is proud to inform all our potential clients that we organize gorilla trekking for the old in Both Rwanda and Uganda. Uganda has set a good example in organizing gorilla trekking for the old people when we witnessed a 90 year old lady track gorillas more over in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Encounter Africa safaris is much aware of the fact that gorilla trekking in Bwindi, Mgahinga and Volcanoes National Park can be strenuous and requires a certain level of fitness something that may be lacking with the elderly people. To make sure that the old people can come to Uganda and see mountain gorillas, we have put measures in place to make sure that gorilla trekking for the old are successful.
When Organizing gorilla trekking for the old, Encounter Africa Safaris ensures that if the old people can walk, our guides will try to explain this to Uganda Wildlife Authority staff so that an easier family is allocated to our old person. In this case, Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger guide tend to move at the pace of the slowest person and as such, old people are able to cope and make it to the gorillas.
Gorilla trekking safaris for the elderly also take into consideration those that can walk for a short time and require a push or a pull. In this case, we advise that such old people should take porters who are always available at the park headquarters. These porters are very helpful since they will give you a push or a pull when it is required to ensure that your make it to the gorillas. We therefore call on all International Tour operators interested in gorilla trekking for the old to contact Encounter Africa Safaris for more details.
