At the end of a visit to Ugandaâ€™s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, according to the introduction of this video, these men stepped out of their tented cabin camp early in the morning and soon found themselves face-to-face with wild gorillas.
The up-close footage of these beautiful animals is fascinating on its own. But it gets even more exciting about 2:30 into the video, as a group of gorillas — including a large male and three little babies — inspect, sniff and sit with a traveler on the side of a trail. The men claim nothing about the video was staged. But even if it were, the once-in-a-lifetime experience looks incredibly special.
