What is it really like to visit the mountain gorillas in Africa? I went to Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to find out. It's a once in a lifetime experience bound to make your heart beat even years later. #mountaingorillas #gorillatrekking #travelguide

Monkey business


May 20, 2012. As they say: Some girls have all the luck. Today I had the rare opportunity to see some of the last remaining 800 Mountain Gorillas. Mountain Gorillas can’t be kept in captivity and their natural habitat lies in the mountain ranges of Rwanda, DR Congo and Uganda. Out of these Uganda and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest have the most successful gorilla conservation project with numbers actually going up.
But not only was I lucky being in Bwindi I also found a travel companion whose travel karma should be a very, very good one: he offered to lend me the 500 USD required to visit. Some girls have all the luck.
Next I’ll circle via the Rwenzori Mountains and Murchison Falls back to Kampala. If I’m even more lucky a Sudanese visa will be waiting there for me.

Do you have anything to add? Thoughts? Opinions? Let me know!
