Morning dedicated to the observation of the gorillas of the Bwindi forest: departure with a ranger for a walk in the forest ofBwindi, at the arrival: one hour in company of the mountain gorillas in the humidity of the forest.The day rises on the mountains of the moon, the volcanoes and the thousand surrounding hills are drowned in the mist.We leave on foot through the forest of bamboos, at about 3000 meters of altitude. Suddenly, between the branches,eyes stare at us. We are silent, branches crack, one then two gorillas pass in the clearing.What tenderness in this face to face that seems so human. To go and meet the mountain gorillasisto realize a child's dream. And even if you have dreamed about it for years, nothing prepares you for the shock of such an encounter!A unique and intense moment.

In the direction of Entebbe, Lake Victoriaspreads its immensity.
