“I have to say that the moment when the silver back came up next to me, time stood still. It was very exiting.” - Mickemathisen

One of the moments you remember

This is a really nice place to go. Theo have 12 different gorilla families in the mountains and we visited the amazing Sabyinyo group. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. Usually they recommend a distance of at least 7 meters to the gorillas but this time the gorilla silver back came up to us very close as you can see on my profile pictures. The weather was really good this day with no rain and not too much sun. When it's raining it must be very slippery to walk up and down that hills.
Before we went up on the mountains it was a show of local dancing with a lot of drums.
I must say that I am really impressed of the way Rwanda has taken care of the gorillas and strongly recommend a visit both to Rwanda in general and specially to Volcanoes Park.
