Touched by a Wild Gorilla in Bwindi Forest

Touched by a Wild Gorilla in Bwindi Forest


An incredible interaction between man and gorillas has been caught on tape within the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This amazing experience between gorillas and a tourist who had gone to South Western Uganda for gorilla trekking has gone viral on Youtube and other video sites as well as many news agencies.

In this video, a troop of wild mountain gorillas visits a tented camp where tourists stay and they find a tourist who has been recognised as John J. King II.

As the family approaches a tourist, the adult gorilla is seen sitting with him, and even grooming him as he sits in quiet amazement—right next to a giant male silverback gorilla. Local rangers were also stumped by this action given that while baby gorillas sometimes interact with humans, the rangers had never known adult animals to take such an interest. Here is a video footage of this interaction.
