A number of things should be considered while booking a gorilla trekking experience in either Uganda or Rwanda for pregnant women;

Inform African adventure vacations of your condition

You need to inform us early when you’re booking with us and then we inform the park warden in time. Once we are informed about this development during our trekking braying or the booking phase of the gorilla safaris, we shall inform the game ward for Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park or Volcanoes National Park to prepare for you. On the day of your actual gorilla trekking while at the briefing point in wither Bwindi or Mgahinga national parks, the parks wards or the park staff in charge of gorilla trekking will allocate the easiest gorilla family that is very easy to trek and which doesn’t require long hours and hiking that the pregnant women may not handle. Informing us of your pregnancy also will help us to look for a comfortable safari vehicle and a professional tour guide that will handle you with care considering your natural conditions. During gorilla trekking, the park wardens that are responsible for gorilla family allocation usually consider the physical fitness of the client, the age, and the interests and believe when you inform us in advance you will be able to trek and see gorillas comfortably with your pregnancy or your pregnant women.

We shall book for you sedan chairs

At Africa adventure vacations we usually encourage the pregnant mother especially whose pregnancy is in between 7 to 9 months to use the sedan chairs that are available in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National park, Sedan chairs are important in carrying you to the point where the gorillas are and back to the gorilla trekking starting point. Usually, we do understand that pregnant mothers that nearly giving birth need extra care and handling when they have booked within us the gorilla trekking safari or holiday. You will sit on the sedan chair and then the porters about 5 of them will majestically carry you to the forest to also enjoy the gorilla trekking experience. The sedan chairs cost about $300 to $500 for locally designed chairs and the original chairs respectively. However, as you being carried on the sedan chair, you’re free to tell the porter to put you done and take a photo when you see something very interesting to take a photo or when you reach the place where the gorillas are found, this will be an interesting adventure activity for you. Please feel free we shall take care of you with your pregnancy and you will have a wonderful experience.

The meant you land at the airstrip from Entebbe our professional driver and the comfortable car to pick you up and drive you safely to the  Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park headquarters for the glorious gorilla trekking activity.
