I will never forget this encounter. A mountain gorilla with baby comes out of the thicket, looks at me briefly and continues to run undisturbed.
One of the last great adventures and dreams of an experienced backpacker: once on the Congo. Wonderful experiences and moving moments along the largest river in Central Africa.
Standing on a mountain - a sublime feeling. Climbing on a volcano - something special. But to look over the crater rim of an active volcano - an awesome bow to Mother Nature. The Nyiragongo volcano in the Virunga National Park in the eastern Congo makes my hair stand on end and gives an impressive insight into the depths of the earth.
