Wildlife Safari – Experience Gorillas in Misty Mountains

Wildlife safari experiences are trips of a lifetime – they change you – just ask Steve Dale who went all the way to Rwanda to meet his cousins, gorillas!wildlife safari

Steve recently got back from his fascinating trip to Africa with Terra Incognita Ecotours. He explored the Virunga mountains of Rwanda. Gorillas are the largest living primate and the mountain gorilla is a sub-species discovered in 1902. They live surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery – it could almost make you forget how critically endangered they are.

Steve actually came face-to-face with the gentle giants and caught it on tape.

In this video Steve talks about this trip, the difficulty of getting to the destination, and the overwhelming feeling when he gets so close to these amazing relatives of humans. Mountain gorillas are surviving because of the money ecotours are bringing into what is otherwise a war-ravaged area, struggling to rebuild.

Enjoy this fascinating wildlife safari on the other side of the world. No passport necessary!

Well, it must be my pc...? But this defaults to the Good Dog video after first flashing images of the gorillas. Odd. I'm going to come back to this since I really want to see these beautiful creatures.
