My husband and I are considering booking a trip to Uganda. I've been to three African countries, but I've longed to see the gorillas and chimps. Unfortunately, I have a bad back and am wondering if I'm taking too much on myself to do the trekking involved to see them. Anyone else have this problem? Just HOW strenuous and difficult are these treks? I know that nothing is guaranteed and you have to "work" to get the great experience, but I don't want to set myself up for failure. I also wouldn't want to inconvenience others in our potential group with my physical limitations. Any thoughts? Many thanks.
Bad backs & gorilla treks?
