Yet another early start with the normal routine of a drive to the Volcano National Park HQ where we watched the entertainment of local dancers and music while the goods worked out what group we would be trekking to. As we were flying home we were allocated a closer group called the Kwitonda family. It is one of the biggest groups with 22 individuals ranging from 2 Silverbacks to one of the smallest babies on the mountain.
Although shorter, the trek took us through very dense jungle, the trackers cutting a path with machetes but eventually we met the group. We thought the last experience couldn’t be topped but we were wrong. We ended up sat under a some low trees with most of the group where they were sheltering from light rain. At times the Silverback was running around beating his chest but it was the female baby that stole the show. Check out that hair do!
Sitting at the airport now waiting for the flight home. Enjoy the photos
