When travelers palaver, one experience that gets everyone’s attention is having visited mountain gorillas. One visitor has written, “There is something deeply touching about seeing these wonderful animals—one almost hesitates to call them that—in their home. Something sweet and informative and piercing. Their wisdom, and that’s exactly what it is, sparkles shyly. And here’s the interesting part: After seeing the gorillas, you see your fellow humans a little differently.” Our Africa experts have built this trip to give you the finest and most respectful visit possible.
