WOAH! What I just experienced today in Uganda is something that I’ll never EVER forget – SEEING MOUNTAIN GORILLAS IN THE WILD!
Mountain gorillas are critically endangered – there are less that 800 of them left in the world and they can only be found in this mountain range (which is shared with Rwanda and the Congo).
We had to trek through thick, wet & dense jungle in Bwindi National Park, Uganda for 2 hours each way (which was not that easy), but we finally did it. I sat there in amazement as I observed a family of 6, and I am still shocked by how similar we are to these guys! We share 96.4% of their DNA – can you believe that?!
If you come to Africa, you NEED TO PUT THIS GORILLA EXPERIENCE IN UGANDA AS #1 ON YOUR LIST!!! TRUST ME!
