A new relationship with animals, nature and each other.

Video of the Year


Of all the great videos of the year, this one really tops the charts. The gorillas simply walk in to a tourist camp at Bwindi National Park one morning.

Note that the great silverback is in charge of the proceedings, letting the kids know what’s OK, what’s not, and how long they can visit the human.

Note: However delightful, touching and magical this close encounter, the gorillas are endangered and we no longer endorse visits from humans, however well managed. More and more of them are dying from picking up new viruses to which they have no immunity.
