I have had the opportunity to travel the world and recently an opportunity to go gorilla trekking presented itself. I thought that it would be a great opportunity like many others that I am lucky to take advantage of being in the travel business but nothing over the top. I could not have been more wrong with my pre-trip assessment. Spending time with the Mountain Gorilla was a life changing event. The grace with which they move around and their family dynamic is incredible. I no longer believe it is ethical to have a Mountain Gorilla in captivity as it would be just like taking you from your parents at a young age and putting you in an exhibit. To visit these wonderful creatures in their environment was truly extraordinary. You haven’t completed your bucket list until you have trekked with the Mountain Gorillas!
