I did it! Eversince I saw Ewan Mcgregor visiting Gorillas in Rwanda in Long Way Down, Volcanoes National Park has been on my bucket list. This year i finally fullfilled my dreams, wasnt cheap i admit, but was totally worth it!!
Tracking guide will tell you more about how to behave when you’re in the presence of gorillas but here are some things to keep in mind:
Dont point index finger into gorillas, they have bad experience with poachers and they might think you want to shoot them
Dont make eye contact with gorillas – can be seen to be aggressive
If gorilla approaches you just act submissive and crouch down, but never run away!
Besides its not allowed to take food, drink with you – you will leave your backpack and unnecessary equipment, clothes in a safe place about hundred meters before you approach gorilla area.
