Gorilla trekking - do you need to be fit?!

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to East Africa in October and hope to incorporate a visit to the mountain gorillas in Rwanda or Uganda.

My other half is enthusiastic about the gorillas, but stressing about whether he can survive the trek to find them! I'd be grateful for feedback from anyone who's been gorilla trekking - how strenuous did you find the trek? How fit do you consider yourself to be? Did anyone in your group struggle?

Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.
