Rwanda gorilla trekking

Jump to last reply

We are going on 2 gorilla treks in late August. We are staying at the Virunga Lodge. My husband and I had a trip planned 30 years ago and then I got pregnant and we had to cancel it. I can finally see our way to go this summer. I am worried because i have arthritis in my hip-years of tennis and high impact activity. I have pain even without a strenuous climb but it is manageable. I am working on strengthening my body for this trip and feel that if I don't go now then when??? I have always loved physical challenge but this is making me nervous. Any thoughts based on your experiences?
Thank you.
