So after being charged twice as Danny mentioned yesterday, which really was terrifying, we slid down the mountain a bit more and found ourselves in a huge clearing with about a dozen mountain gorillas.
We spent an hour with them, and while it was probably the most expensive hour of our whole lives, it was incredible.
Our gorilla group- nkongo- had 18 members, including one 4 month old infant and a set of one year old twins.
While we only saw one silverback, there were two in the group as well as several males. After being charged, I was surprised the gorillas allowed us to come so close to them. For about an hour (maybe a little more but shhh…) we stood less than 10 feet from the gorillas, watching them eat, play and interact with each other.
