For families planning a vacation and holiday in Uganda and Rwanda that includes gorilla trekking, the question of whether children under the age of 15 will be allowed to participate in the trek is a common concern. The minimum age limit for gorilla trekking in both countries is a topic of interest for many.
Trek Africa Expeditions understands the importance of family vacations and the desire to include children in the gorilla trekking experience. However, in order to ensure the safety and well-being of both the gorillas and the children, there is a minimum age limit of 15 years for gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda.
For families with children under 15 years of age, Trek Africa Expeditions offers alternative activities such as games, swimming, community visits, simple nature walks and more. These activities are designed to provide a fun and engaging experience for the children while still allowing them to explore and learn about the local environment. We recommend that parents bring along some games that they know their children will enjoy.
