Gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda is for everyone except the sick and children below the age of 15. Age and disability should not be an excuse for you to miss out on gorilla trekking simply because you think you cannot trek up to where the gorillas will be. Gorilla trekking sedan chairs are available and have helped many to see gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable national Park and Volcanoes National Park in Uganda and Rwanda respectively. Encounter Africa Safaris does not only organize gorilla tours for the young and energetic but also for the old and disabled people whose dream is to meet the giant mountain gorillas when in Uganda or Rwanda

Cost of gorilla trekking sedan chairs
Gorilla trekking sedan chairs are paid for separately and will depend on the distance covered to find the gorillas and then back plus the weight of the client in question. The cost may range between USD350-500. This involves the cost of the people who will carry you to and from the gorillas to make sure that you achieve your dream of getting face to face with the rare and endangered mountain gorillas. There several gorilla trekking sedan chairs in all regions of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Buhoma, Ruhija, Nkuringo and Rushaga) but they require advance booking. For those in need of gorilla trekking sedan chairs, please contact Encounter Africa Safaris at the time of booking so that we acquire it for you. Once we get your request, we will check availability for the dates of your gorilla trekking and then advise you on how much it will cost you to hire a gorilla trekking sedan chair and porters to carry you to and from the gorillas. In a situation where we fail to get a sedan chair, we will advise you to take a locally made sedan chair which does the same job at a lower cost. Uganda has been a very good case study of providing very good grounds that enable aged and disabled people go gorilla trekking. We have had tourists aged 90 years and above come here and successfully see gorillas.
Do not miss you chance of seeing gorillas. Just contact Encounter Africa Safaris who will organize everything for you from transport, accommodation, gorilla permits, entry fees and gorilla trekking sedan chairs if required
