To spend an hour with Mountain Gorillas is one of the best wildlife experiences you can ever hope for. They captivate you with their eyes and you become lost in the moment. Your time with them goes so fast you are left just wanting more…

These gorillas were a few metres away but the soulful emotion between our glances was immense and also saddening. I hope these majestic apes are able to hold on.

There my be hope yet for the mountain gorilla as a recent WWF report states, please have a look at it HERE

    Your photo goes to their soul.. I use to visit daily some in captivity in the Central Park Zoo many years ago when Zoo’s were not great places for any animal. The gorillas were the sadest, you could see how they hated their prision and the bordom they were forced to live in. Now even in the wild they are endangered. You would think humans would treat these creatures better as they are so much like us and our ancestors.
