MOUNTA I N GO­RIL­LAS

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild October -

You’ll be hard pressed to find a wildlife ex­pe­ri­ence as mov­ing as vis­it­ing a ha­bit­u­ated group of Moun­tain go­ril­las in the lux­u­ri­ant for­est of Bwindi Im­pen­e­tra­ble Na­tional Park. Lo­cated on the edge of the Al­ber­tine Rift Val­ley, the park is home to half of the world’s re­main­ing 880-odd Moun­tain go­ril­las. Your jour­ney be­gins with a brief­ing from the head ranger, be­fore your guide leads you through the dense for­est to track th­ese mighty crea­tures in their nat­u­ral habi­tat. Once you’ve found a go­rilla fam­ily, you’ll have an hour to ob­serve them (for con­ser­va­tion rea­sons). We rec­om­mend adding a sec­ond go­rilla track­ing ex­cur­sion into your itin­er­ary so as to make the most of this un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence.
