An Amazing Encounter: Touched By A Wild Mountain Gorilla

On my second trip to Africa, one of the highlights was getting to visit the mountain gorillas in Bwindi National Park in Uganda.
I read about an amazing video a few days back. A tourist was taking pictures/ videos of the gorillas and they came over to him and started petting and grooming him! What an amazing encounter! The video is a must watch and one of the most amazing vids I’ve ever seen on YouTube. Check for the link it out at the end of my post.
As I watched the video,. the man mentioned which gorilla family he had the interaction with. Immediately I realized it was the same one that my wife and I got to track- the Rusheguras!
What a strange coincidence…
This post is not about my experience in Uganda (I plan to do one in the near future-stay tuned!)
Here is a photo of us standing infront of the meeting point before starting our gorilla trek:
