Gorillas Off The List

With only two weeks until my year long African adventure comes to an end I am rushing to tick off as many things as I can on my Ugandan Bucket List (next up is ascending the 16,000ft peak of Murabura in Rwanda on Sunday). Today I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend an hour in the company of one of the world’s most endangered species; the mountain gorilla.

There are only 860 left spread across three countries, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda.

To stop myself going all Attenborough on you I’ll just finish by saying that if you get the chance, do it. There may not be much time left.

Plus, a picture speaks a thousand words, even if they are the dulcet tones of Sir David.
