Myself and a female friend are hoping to add to our Bucket list of travel by completing a trek to see the majestic Gorillas. Firstly, we are not couch potatoes but I am 45 and my friend is nearing 60 years of age. I do a lot of walking. My friend has concerns that her fitness will not allow her to undertake the trek. Are there any older traveller's out there who can advise on this? I have read some reviews regarding the treks and there seems to be quite a huge range of different opinions. Very honest views on this please from OLDER people who have completed the treks?
Also, where would you recommend we go for the best trip - Rwanda or Uganda? It is all a little over whelming at the moment trying to decide.
Any advice appreciated
Thank you for reading
