Up Close and Personal with the Mountain Gorillas - Rwanda Gorilla Trekking / by JD Andrews

Silverback Gorilla

Looking into the eyes of a huge Silverback Gorilla while trying to keep my balance on the side of a mountain, all the while realizing I'm in "his" house is something I will never forget.

Gorilla trekking is big business in Rwanda, instead of poachers killing the beautiful animals, they are now paid to find them and let tourists shoot them (with cameras of course.)
