I bet this was exhilarating but I bet his heart was pounding too, but what an experience.

I saw this in a paper earlier in the week, I dont know how wild the place is where it was taken, but if you look carefully at the photo. There are concrete steps scratch

WOW what an amazing piece of footage. That must have been such a fantastic experience for Mr King but I'm sure his heart must have been in his mouth at times with the gorilla's being so close affraid

This was on the Governors Camp FB Page the other day, another amazing encouter with a Gorilla for someone Very Happy

Gorilla update from Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge:

The sightings have been incredible and the guests come back with amazing stories of their close encounters. On a track yesterday one of the guests received a very gentle nudge from a Black Back Gorilla asking him to pls step aside as he wanted to pass. The guest chose to ignore the request so the Gorilla gently picked him up by the shoulders and put him down next to the footpath and calmly continued passed the other guests.

Very good news, Susa family also had a new offspring 4 days ago. Kwitonda's little one now 3 months old and Sabyinyo's one and a half month old are both doing very well. The Hirwa twins celebrated their 1st birthday on the 3rd of February. Susa twins now almost 8 months old. Both sets of twins very healthy and doing well.

Doogs That had me in stitches lol! Can you just imagine the shock that Guest got when the Gorilla picked him up, and put him on one side. That will teach him to mind his manners.

Oh that is just so funny, what a brilliant story, and that'll teach the guest to pay more attention!

He must have had such a shock!

Great find Doogs.
