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.
But before i leave to the airport some more pics from safari in Tanzania.”-)
Thats all i managed to sort out for now….
In two days i have probably saw only a pixel of mega big 14,763 sq km Serengeti. Definitely worth a bumpy ride!
Along with wildlife i just fell in love with the endless skies that looked awesome just in every part of the day. Hypnotic!
Joined safari with Shadows of Africa
Just came back from safari in Serengeti. There are so many pictures so i decided to break safari in Tanzania to multiple posts. We had a wonderful chance to observe this amusing lion couple just about 4 meters from the safari car. Lioness was not in the mood for love right a way, but lion was persistent, so finally…. Love is in the air.
This was my second time safari with Shadows of Africa. www.shadowsofafrica.com
Travel plans for this Christmas are special, my wish to see mighty Serengeti will come true finally. Last year I already saw Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Lake Eyasi and Lake Manyara. This year I am ready to witness wildebeest migration in full swing in Serengeti! YAY!
