I had been looking forward to this for such a long time that I wondered whether the experience I would have would match the one I had imagined. Glad to say that it exceeded my expectations.
The trek to see the Isabukuru group of gorillas consisted of a six hour round trip plus one hour with the gorillas. It was a steep trek through thick jungle and often through mud - an exciting challenge but achievable if fit. The stinging nettles were uncomfortable but forgotten once in the company of the gorillas. The first glimpse of the gorillas brought a tear to the eye. What magnificent creatures. The gorillas were habituated and tolerated our presence by carrying on with their daily lives. There were gorillas of all shapes and sizes from the silverback to adults, juveniles and the cutest of babies (Fasha, that's you I'm talking about). They were clearly visible and close by. It was impossible not to get a good photo or two (hundred). One of the babies even reached out and touched my sister, another leant on her.
The guide Kari was very knowledgeable. The porters helped whoever needed help - they were good at pushing up hills and guiding down steep and slippery descents. All in all and amazing experience that will be etched in my memory forever.
