Seniors Gorilla Trekking Safaris in Uganda – Things you need to know

  Gorilla Trekking Safaris for Seniors – the logical choice in 2019 is Uganda.  Though Seniors Discounts in East Africa are not offered for some odd reasons, Trekking Gorillas in Uganda comes with an automatic Discount of 900 USD less for a Gorilla Permit than in neighboring Rwanda.  One can do a mid-range or upmarket 3-Day Gorilla Trekking Safari for less than what just the permit costs in Rwanda.  That price difference is the reason for the “Great Gorilla Trekker Migration from Rwanda to Uganda.  The pressure on Uganda’s Gorilla Trekking permits was further increased when Gorilla Trekking in Virunga National Park was suspended for the rest of the years due to security reason.

Seniors have also discovered that Uganda is the logical and cost-saving choice – there are more permits and one can trek at a lower elevation which is important to some, The difficulty of a trek can also be reduced by visiting an easier gorilla family to find in the Forest.

Seniors African Safari Holiday – When creating your safari, we take your input, Consider the kind of lodges you prefer, the difficulty of a trek, or whether you prefer one hour or all-day with a Gorilla Family Troop.

Fly into Rwanda and Trek Gorillas in Uganda taking advantage of Uganda’s lower permit price and more affordable lodging option.  

 Am I fit enough for Gorilla Trekking?

In 2013 a 94-year-old woman was carried on a stretcher on her Gorilla trek and fulfilled her lifelong dream to see the Mountain Gorillas in her lifetime – she did.  She was carried by 12 men in relay teams and did it – most that go gorilla tracking are a bit younger, though we have clients that were 80 years old and did just fine.

One should be in reasonable shape and state of fitness to track the gorillas.  The gorilla group requiring the most stamina and strength is the Nkuringo Gorilla group since you have to ascend and descend 600 at the beginning and the end of the trek – however, Porters can be used to carry your daypack and walking sticks can be purchased or some lodges have them available for their guests.

Both Uganda and Rwanda have tough groups to track and easier ones – we will work with you according to your fitness level and stamina.i
