I am planning a trip that was to include two gorilla treks in Rwanda, where some folks on TA have indicated trekking is easier than in Uganda--but just found out that starting immediately, the cost of permits in Rwanda is doubling from $750 to $1500 per trek, per person, which is really prohibitive. Before giving up on the dream of a gorilla trek, I wanted to know whether or not to rule out Uganda for gorilla trekking. We will be 68 and 73 at the time of the trip, reasonably active and in good health. I understand that in Rwanda, visitors are assigned to easy-moderate-difficult groups based on the likely (but not guaranteed) location of different gorilla families. Is this the case in Uganda? Is there a particular location in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where we are better off staying in order to have easiest access to the gorillas? Any information based on actual experience or observation of others' trekking experience would be most appreciated.
