A Place among the Gentle Giants


Dian Fossey's life commitment to saving the mountain gorillas is what makes this tour special and unforgettable. You witness something truly great when you see the gentle giants up-close, so surreal is the experience it's almost spiritual! It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This tour holds such powerful emotions, many always come back with different tales of their experiences. From the journey to the park, the impenetrable forests one weaves through, the gorilla families, the presence of the mighty silverback, it is a worthwhile safari to sum it up.

The last entry in Fossey's journal says, "When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future. "

It is without a doubt why many travel many miles to see this wonder and put a gorilla safari on their bucket list.
