1st of the Gorillas that brushed past me and Anita yesterday at Mahinga National Park! We had a family of 9 including 2nd biggest silverback in the world and 2 babies. Kind of stressful and so damn exciting #gorillatracking #silverback #experienceofalifetime #uganda #mahinganationalpark

Those of us that have had the rare privilege of spending precious time in the company of these gentle giants will appreciate why we, at Watalii Safaris, are still celebrating #worldgorilladay 🦍 as it should be #everyday ° ° ° In addition to the #thrilling adventure, the revenue generated from guests tracking #kingkong, among other things, funds conservation efforts such as protecting them and their habitats (the numbers have just increased and are currently estimated to be about 1,000 #mountaingorillas from a minimum of about 480 in 2010) and helps generate employment opportunities for the local communities. This enhances the much needed co-existence and sustainability of the entire ecosystem. ° ° ° We know for a fact that everyone deserves a moment with these charming creatures, so let us assist you to have a #tailormade experience and help you create #memoriesforlife ° ° ° #primates #mountaingorilla #greatapes #endangeredspecies #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #amazinganimals #naturelovers #wildlife_seekers #luxurysafari #luxurytravel #honeymoon #gorillatracking #gorillatrekking #rwanda #uganda #africa #eastafrica #tripforlife #couplegoals #wataliisafaris

In honor of #worldgorilladay yesterday, here is a belated picture from when I went gorilla trekking in Rwanda. I’m still so in awe of these animals and am so thankful I got the chance to see them. #volcanoesnationalpark #musanze #rwanda #ruhengeri #mountaingorillas #mountaingorillasofrwanda #gorillatracking #africa #eastafrica

Happy #WorldGorillaDay 🦍Mountain gorilla habituation programme, 📍Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, 🇺🇬 Uganda. Did you know? Gorilla habituation is used to acclimatise wild gorillas to the sight of people. It involves different groups of people, including trackers, conservationists, researchers and rangers approaching the gorillas and spending time with them. It takes two to three years to complete. Stay tuned for the latest Aardvark Safaris blog on the new camp openings for primate safaris.

Today is WORLD GORILLA DAY. 🦍 Did you know Mountain Gorillas and Human beings share 98% of their DNA?? 🦍 The Mountain Gorillas are listed as CRITICALLY ENDANGERED since 1996 by the @wwf as there are only about 880 remaining in the wild. Lets save these gentle giants so our younger generations have a chance to see them in the future. . . . . . . . . . . #gorilla #gorillas #gorillatracking #bwindiimpenetrableforest #exploreafrica #africatravel #gotoafrica #travelafrique #gltlove #bbctravel #cnntravel #uganda #stadt #reisen #reise #tourisme #mustsee #passionpassport #loveandtravel #globaltrotter #sheexplores #luxurylife #wanderlust #prince #safari #africansafari #photography #travelgram #love #wildlife

Une rencontre inoubliable avec ces gorilles des montages dans le Parc national des volcans au Rwanda! Il est difficile de mettre en mots à quel point c'était incroyable d'être si près de ces beaux animaux et de les voir interagir/communiquer entre eux. Je n'oublierai jamais les pirouettes que faisaient les bébés dans les arbres ou bien le cri de la femelle pour rappeler son petit vers elle. Le coût du permis pour cette randonnée est dispendieux mais l'argent que déboursent les randonneurs contribue aux initiatives de conservation des gorilles des montages. En 2010, on comptait plus de 800 gorilles au Rwanda, en Ouganda et en RDC alors qu'en 2018, on en compte plus de 1000. C'est une nouvelle encourageante pour ces magnifiques animaux, en voie d'extinction. #gorillas #mountaingorillas #gorillesdesmontagnes #wildlife #volcanoesnationalpark #rwanda #conservation #ruhengeri #africa #indangeredspecies #wildlifeprotection #gorillatrekking #gorillatracking #uganda

This is adult female, Mokebo, one of Kamaya's females who is shyer & more difficult to spot, she normally chooses to stay further away from observers than the rest of the group. Mokebo is also mother to Orema, the adorable juvenille in Gabon Wildlife Camps profile photo. @ Loango National Park C'est une femme adulte, Mokebo, une des femmes de Kamaya qui est plus timide et plus difficile à repérer, elle choisit normalement de rester plus loin des observateurs que le reste du groupe.

Real recognize real... and Gorillas recognize Gorillas. This big rig didn’t give a shred of a shit that I was within a metre or so of him, aside from grunting at me to let me know “that’s close enough”. It was an incredible experience to get this up close and personal with a Mountain Gorilla group, specifically the alpha silverback, in their natural habitat and was well worth the 6+ hour track through Bwindi impenetrable rainforest. #uganda #africa #travel #gorillatracking #mountaingorilla #conservation #nature #bwindiimpenetrablenationalpark #rainforest #hiking

On the edge of the Rift Valley in south western Uganda lies Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. It hosts one of Uganda's oldest and most biologically diverse rainforest jungle, dating back over 25,000 years and containing roughly 400 species of plants. This rainforest is a habitat to an estimated 320 mountain gorillas, constituting almost half of the world gorilla population. The rainforest also provides shelter to a diversity of mammals such as primates, elephants, antelopes and leopards. There are over 350 bird species hosted in this rainforest as well. Gorilla tracking safari has become popular and boy, this is one thrilling safari!! Send us an email for a custom GT safari, bookings@globalstartours.com, we will organize a nice package specially tailored for you. #EastAfricaSafari #Uganda #GorillaTracking #Safari #Elephants #Antelopes #Leopards #BirdWatching #GoSomewhere #GlobaStarTours

Finding gorillas.... Every day Loango's group of habituated gorillas are tracked & (usually) found within their 20km homerange. This isn't an easy task but thankfully we have highly skilled trackers who can spot subtle signs such as frehsly eaten food on the forest floor that leads us onto the right path. This is a plant called Baphia. The gorillas strip & eat the bark. It can be found all over the forest. If the woody interior found on the floor is still slightly wet, slippery, and has a fresh smell then it has been stripped recently by a gorilla not too far away. The gorilla's movements & dietary information, along with many other details, are logged daily for research. @ Loango National Park chercher des gorilles .... Chaque jour, le groupe de gorilles habitués de Loango est suivi et (généralement) retrouvé dans sa zone de 20 km. Ce n'est pas une tâche facile, mais heureusement, nous avons des suiveurs hautement qualifiés qui peuvent repérer des signes subtils tels que des aliments fraîchement consommés sur le sol de la forêt, qui nous amènent sur le bon chemin. Ceci est une plante appelée Baphia. Les gorilles décapent et mangent l'écorce. On peut le trouver partout dans la forêt. Si l'intérieur boisé se trouve sur le sol est encore légèrement humide, glissante, et a une odeur fraîche, puis il a été dépouillé récemment par un gorille pas trop loin. Les mouvements et informations diététiques du gorille, ainsi que de nombreux autres détails, sont consignés quotidiennement pour la recherche. @ Parc National Loango

This is adult female Iguela who until recently was one of Kamaya's ladies in the habituated western lowland gorilla group in Loango National Park. Back in May Iguela briefly left the group for a couple of weeks, only to make a return to the delight of staff & researchers. Since then she has left again & been spotted with another group. This is completley normal for females to switch groups, especially at a time when they have no independant offspring, and take the opportunity to breed with a different male. Named after the beautiful lagoon that gives life to forests & always a favourite due to her cool, calm, and relaxed nature around humans, Iguela will be missed! @ Loango National Park Voici la femelle adulte Iguela qui, jusqu'à récemment, était l'une des dames de Kamaya dans le groupe de gorilles habituées du parc national de Loango. En mai Iguela brièvement quitté le groupe pendant deux ou trois semaines, mais a fait un retour, à la grande joie du personnel et des chercheurs. Depuis lors, elle est repartie et a été vue avec un autre groupe. Il est tout à fait normal que les femmes changent de groupe, surtout à un moment où elles n’ont pas de progéniture indépendante, pour profiter de l’opportunité de se reproduire avec un autre homme. Nommé d'après le magnifique lagon qui donne vie aux forêts et toujours favori en raison de sa nature fraîche, calme et détendue autour des humains, Iguela nous manquera! @ Parc National Loango

At the peak of Mount Gahinga lies a beautiful Swampy Caldera that comes as a surprise at 3,450m. The 180wide Caldera is sorrounded by vegetation that brings out a paradise kind of blend. Mt. Gahinga is one of the Virunga ranges and lies between Muhabura and Sabinyo. The ranges are found in Mgahinga national park which is home to the gorrilas, golden monkeys , buffalos, elephants , other mammals & birds. Any of the activities can be arranged @jojothetraveler . #gorillatracking #hiking #naturewalks #community #goldenmonkeys #caldera

Primate Power:  No primate on Earth is stronger than a silverback mountain gorilla.  At just over 400 lbs, these great apes possess incredible strength, but it is often reserved power. Gentle by nature, a silverback's main role is guardian and protector of the troop, and this male had 19 members in his family unit to watch over!  Strict vegetarians, gorillas dine on several species of native plants indigenous to the high-elevation Ugandan rainforests. #africanwildlife #naturephotography #wilderness #bwindi #bwindiforest #ugandaparks #mountaingorilla #gorillas #greatapes #wildlife #africa #ugandawildlife #primates #mammals #wildlifephotography #gorillatracking #endangeredspecies

Beautiful photos From Credit © 📷 @chandraghosh, Thank you @chandraghosh This morning, I noticed that a large bruise inflicted by Bwindi’s impenetrable vegetation more than a month ago is yet to fade entirely. And then I suddenly realised that’s it’s been more than a month since Uganda! While I am yet to review and organize all photos from the experience of a lifetime, here are some highlights from Bwindi. The photos are of members of the Bikyingi group of the Rushaga sector which is undergoing habituation and the habituated Habinyanja group of the Buhoma sector. #gorilla #habituation #gorillatracking #gorillahike #uganda #bwindi #bwindiimpenetrableforest #wildfrontiersuganda #wildlife #canon #canonphotos #canon6d #throwback #travel2018

Climbed one of the 5 volcanoes of Rwanda yesterday, called BISOKE. Did it in 3 hours 10 min, with falling and opstaan, lots of mud and laughter. Not an easy hike though. But it was worth it, seeing the gorillas, learning new stories and gaining new friends. Its so Rwandaful #rwanda #volcanoes #vacation #afrotourism #rwandaful #bisoke #mountaingorillas #visitrwanda #gorillatracking #volcanonationalpark

Waka the juvenile Western Lowland gorilla isn't worried about getting his feet (and more) wet. In Loango the gorillas' habitat contains many swamps & these provide some vital food sources such as cyperacae & marantacae in the dry season when fruit isn't as abundant. @ Loango National Park Waka le gorille juvénile ne s'inquiète pas de se mouiller les pieds (et plus). À Loango, l'habitat des gorilles contient de nombreux marécages et ceux-ci fournissent des sources de nourriture vitales telles que les cyperacae et les marantacées en saison sèche lorsque les fruits ne sont pas aussi abondants. @ Parc National Loango

In the presence of the king himself... This short clip was taken by one of our clients on a #3DaysGorillaTrackingTrip. This Trip starts from Kampala, at your location, then you drive towards South Western Uganda. You have an #EquatorStopOver, lunch along the way and later check-in at your accommodation at #lakebunyonyi . Day two, you drive through the misty hills of kabale to #bwindiimpenetrablenationalpark Where you do the #gorillatracking . Later, you return to the Lake for a laid back afternoon and evening where you can swim, canoe, do a nature or cultural walk or cycling or even birding. Sometimes, lying in a hammock by the Lake is good enough. At night you have a Campfire with #Barbeque dinner and there's also a choice for #vegeterianfood . Day Three, you check out at about 10.00am, do sight seeing as you drive back to the city. This we offer on different #budgets , both privately and in #GroupTrips . Visit www.humuratours.com for details.. #gorilla #primates #primatesafari #MountainGorillas #traveller #tourist #tour #backpacking #backpackers #visituganda #HumuraTours

Der Bwindi Impenetrable National Park liegt im Südwesten Ugandas am Rande des Rift Valley. Seine nebelbedeckten Hügel sind von einem der Ältesten und äusserst artenreichsten Regenwälder Ugandas bedeckt, der über 25.000 Jahre alt ist und fast 400 Pflanzenarten beherbergt. Und ganz viele Vögel, kleine und grosse Säugetiere. Und Gorillas! #pureafrica #privatesafaris

Today we visited the mountain gorilla family lead by the silverback Christmas. He was showing his power 1,5 meters in front of me by hitting his fist in the ground and looking at me. The ranger just whispered in my ear, don’t move. So you show him you are stronger than him. So my legs were shaking 😄 what an amazing experience! #anneharry2africa #photooftheday #mountaingorilla #uganda #nature #adventureseeker #hiking #gorillatracking #silverback #bucketlist #amazing #overlandingafrica #overlanding #traveller
