Gorrilla Trekking

Jump to last reply

Thinking of gorilla trekking in either Uganda or Rwanda. Have some questions about the treks:-

What's the difference between gorilla treks in Uganda and Rwanda? I've read Rwanda is better, would fodorites who have been to both agree?

How strenous are the treks, I don't mind walking, but not on uneven ground and uphill walks. Is there a way to avoid uneven ground/uphill walks on gorilla treks?

I am looking at travel in October which I understand isn't the best time to travel to to region, is it unwise to take a gorilla trek in October?

What tour companies or local tour operators do fodorites recommend?

Thanks in advance.
