THE JOURNEY BEGINS
The original interest in this amazing vacation had sprung from looking forward to retirement and knowing that we both wanted to travel. We had $2,800 in travel vouchers we needed to use before they expired. It was time to knock an item off of our bucket list. Then, we saw this video and we knew where we wanted to go.
(Mwirima, is the silverback gorilla in the video is from December, 2011. He passed away on March 3, 2014, so there was no chance we would be able to see him.)
We would go see the endangered mountain gorillas. There are 880 wild and none in captivity. And, why not we stay in the same camp where that video was taken! Oh, and while we’re it, we decided we couldn’t go to Africa without going on safari, so that would be part of the trip, too. ~ Mary & Mark
