Rwanada & Uganda Gorilla Discovery

Introduction

Your guide puts up his hand and motions for you to crouch down — and a silverback gorilla settles down to eat nearby. The experience is just one breathtaking moment of an unforgettable nine-day expedition to the forests of Rwanda and Uganda to track gorillas, golden monkeys, and other wildlife. As you witness primates in their element, tap into your own wild side.
