The Mountain gorillas

Wow, wow, wow – what can we say! An early morning start led us within an hour to a group of 19 gorillas –  the Agushya  family. The group included young males, the silverback male, 9 females, young ranging from 5 days old to 5-6 months and up. At one point the entire family group was round us, sleeping, playing, nursing, grooming one another. To look into their gentle eyes was an amazing experience. The weather was perfect – hazy with a nice breeze. We’ll let the photos tell the story.
