Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, January 2009
Gorillas, Parc National des Volcans, Rwanda. After 1.5 hours or so of slogging and scrambling we got to a small clearing to see the gorilla group. The clouds were thick and there was little light even in this clearing for my little camera, but I did what I could. The silverback spent about half an hour just lying there, turned away from us. Then he sat up for about ten minutes, then he lay down again. Meanwhile, some young gorillas roughhoused, and a mother nursed her baby. Not to be missed.
