The Mountain Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

The broad-shouldered silverback gorilla casually makes its way past our group of hikers, flexing his muscles while he slowly knuckle-walks towards a patch of tangled vegetation.

There’s a beautiful ebb and flow of sightings in the bushveld. Sometimes it’s a week of plains game sightings peppered with predator sightings, and other weeks its predators barging into the limelight and plains game taking a back sight.
