Tracking Wild Mountain Gorillas
Tue January 21, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Deep in the tangled jungles of Uganda and Rwanda’s volcanic highlands, take a seat with endangered mountain gorillas. Try to remember to breathe. Watch from your forest clearing as curious babies play, rambunctious teenagers wrestle, and a gentle silverback wields such an inspiring presence over his family that he steals your breath away. Sitting with gorillas is an apex wildlife encounter that’s unrivaled in its intimacy and its rarity. The mountain gorilla population is small but growing, thanks to solid protections nurtured by conservation tourism. Take our virtual journey to see gorillas, chimpanzees, golden monkeys and more with Expedition Leader Mark Jordahl—our naturalist expert who lived in Uganda for years and even wrote guidebooks about three of Uganda’s national parks for the Uganda Wildlife Authority.
