With no Mountain Gorillas in captivity, going to Africa and Gorilla trekking, is the only way to photograph these spectacular, shy primates and the experience is a life changing event.

The Virunga mountains contain approximately 50% of the population of Mountain Gorilla. Photographing and encountering these magnificent, highly sociable primates is awe inspiring.

Trekking through the jungle, photographing a Silverback, a mother with a baby, or a playful adolescent is one of photography’s greatest experiences, so join Gavin and Images in Africa Safaris for 3 Gorillas treks to photograph these special primates.
