I thought day 1 was awesome but day 2 provided close encounters with a very amorous silverback and his lady friend on two occasions. Only footage from the second session edited from 3 minutes because they were enjoying themselves.
The footage was taken with a Canon 50XHS/Nikon d7100 using the zoom and an iPole for the GoPro. The video has been edited from an extensive amount of footage to include what I believe is the best of the film and to show the viewer what I saw during the time I was with the animals. I do not at any stage want to offend anybody with these videos and have made them for my own enjoyment and to show people how awesome nature is.
At all times during the sighting the gorilla's welfare was paramount to not only myself but also to my guide. We were respectful of distance when physically possible and had rangers present during the sighting. During the sighting we were a group of 8 and tried to remain quiet and mindful of the animal's behaviour so as to create the least amount of stress as possible.
