Gorilla trekking in Rwanda: Trip report

Jump to last reply

This was the last segment of our month-long trip to Africa. We had been quite careful with the water, except for a few ice cubes here and there, but as you'll see, my husband woke up the morning of our first gorilla trek and threw up 3 times in front of our lovely cabin at Virunga Lodge! But we made it to both treks, visiting the Sabyinyo and Bwenge Groups. It was magical.
The video is 4 1/2 minutes long.

If you'd like to see the other parts of our trip, click on my name at the upper right hand corner and they'll appear:

Part I is the Garden Route and Cape Town, wherein we got evacuated from Tsitsikamma National Park during the big end of August storm; then robbed in Cape Town;

Part II is Mala Mala, wherein we saw the "Big Seven;"

Part III is the Selinda Walking Trail (with lots of lions);

and Part IV is the Great Wilderness Journey in Botswana.

Each is 3-4 minutes long.

Again, thanks so much to this Board for all the planning help!
