The guides were able to get us incredibly close to the gorillas.

The big male silverback - The obvious leader of this group weighing in at 250 kg.

Rwanda is one of the only places in the world where you can get up close to rare Mountain Gorillas. There are none in captivity and there are only about 700 left in the wild in central Africa. Each day they're tracked and their position radioed back so that the guides can take a small group of 8 people to see them for 1 hour only. It was an amazing experience see them interact at close range. We were literally surrounded by wild gorillas at very close range, sometimes only a few feet away!!
