How to Get to various Destinations for Gorilla Trekking

When coming to Africa for a gorilla trekking tour, there is no flying safaris for watching the gorillas, all gorilla safaris will require you to enter and walk into the forest to search for these primates in their natural habitat, even if the safari company says that it will be a flying safari, just know there will be a distance to be covered in 4×4 WD from the airfield to the hotel where you booked overnight stay and the drive from the hotel to the gorilla verifying point, However flying gorilla safaris are possible in Uganda and Rwanda, the case for dr congo is totally different. Old-aged travelers are advised to inform the reservation team to offer a provision of hiring porters that will carry you during the gorilla trekking exercise and you won’t move ( walk) during this gorilla walking experience.

Gorilla Flying safaris involve light aircraft transfers between the Cities and national parks. Once at the camps the lodge staff will take care of everything. You can choose to have a specialist guide for the duration of the safari or utilize the guides at the lodges and camps.
Most gorilla tours to African Destinations either start from Rwanda Kigali or Entebbe international airport with a few cases for Goma.
