Anyone have links to Gorilla Trek Pictures?

I am really curious about seeing some gorilla trek pictures. Anyone have any to share?

I have never even been, so shame on me for knowing these off the top of my head:

This backpacker recently returned from Uganda/Rwanda. His (her?) website includes some gorilla pics:

And of course, check out:

And, yes, thee are some Fodor's posters who have been. I don't know how to access those links.

Click on the above link.

Are you thinking of going? Many of us would urge you to go.

Wow! Those videos and pictures from the 13 months link are amazing!!

Unfortunately, that last link is not working. Can you check it?

We just booked a trip to South Africa at Royal Malewane for a safari. We are also going to Cape Town, the Winelands, and Amsterdam. I figured we were better off doing a traditional safari before doing the gorilla trek.

But I am researching it for next year. I am trying to all these big trips before my husband and I have a baby.

I did redo the link. Actually, your request made me figure out how Kodakshare works. I think, if this link works. If not, back to the drawing board.

A South Africa safari and then a gorilla trip would be a wonderful combo. Then when the baby gets older, s/he can accompany you on the next safari!

Ironically the first gorilla picture is of 7 week old twins.

I seem to recall that there was a woman who was leaving for safari in Kenya/Tanzania followed by gorilla trekking followed by time in Cape Town. She should be somewhere over there right about now. Hopefully she will return and report back and post her photos.

I remember this because at the very last minute she had some problems with her itinerary/operator. Then she got it all straightened out.

TuskerDave,

I like the postcard effect in some of your pics. Always nice to see recent pictures of our gorilla friends.
