The Great Uganda Gorilla Safari
A Rare Opportunity to Sit With Families of Endangered Mountain Gorillas
You push aside a tangled rope of vine, pressing through the maze of foliage, when at last you see them. Ten or twelve gorillas sit in a forest clearing, two more up in a tree. They stop munching for a moment to observe you, nonchalant. A few feet away you spy the big silverback. Twice the size of the young females, he sits on massive haunches, stripping leaves from branches. He’s close enough to hold your gaze with his liquid brown eyes. Something primal, inexplicable, connects the two of you in that moment, when the world exists only within this rarest of encounters. On this riveting wildlife expedition, meet mountain gorillas at close range and observe a host of other primates, too, including chimpanzees.
