Golden Monkeys or a second Gorilla trek? Which to do?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be at Sabyinyo late next month and have booked a gorilla trek for the second day after we arrive. The first day after our arrival we had kept open, to acclimatize and to do an easy trek to the golden monkeys (which we have not reserved yet.) We will be coming after a couple of weeks in Kenya so we will already have been at some altitude. However after reading everything we can find on the mountain gorillas including all the fabulous trip reports here, we are wondering if we are making a mistake? Should we try for a second gorilla trek instead of the monkeys (if permits are indeed still available for that date?) We are both in fairly good physical condition , but minor knee issues would restrict us to visiting only the nearest gorilla families. We would love to hear any advice you may have (though I think I know what everyone will say...) Thank-you!
