” The Gorilla Trek in Uganda was like nothing i have ever experienced in my life, its hard to explain the feeling sitting just meters away from these huge Gorillas. There is something so humbling, yet so sad. To know these are the last few Gorillas living in the wild. By trekking with the Gorillas you are helping the conservation efforts against Gorilla poachers”
