You can go Rwanda or Uganda gorilla tracking, with both offering an authentic experience. Combine your gorilla trekking with a visit to the Chimpanzee sanctuary on Ngamba Island.
What surprised me about the gorillas was their playfulness. Babies were chasing each other, parents gently scolding them, and the great silverback was watching it all from the sidelines. Seeing the gorillas is a life changing experience and something everyone should do in their lifetime.
