Ski surrounded by the Italian Dolomites' jagged peaks. Departures December through to February.
You have struggled through a high altitude jungle leaving you gasping when suddenly a relative of yours shambles across your path giving you an inquisitive stare. You can smell the mountain celery on his breath and you realise that at any time he or she could knock you over. You are overwhelmed but not scared... welcome to mountain gorillas.
Primates, be they gorillas, orang-utans or chimps have a special place in the wildlife litany as they share so many of our traits... and not just the good ones. Finding them is hard and expecting them to perform is childish; but nothing takes away the visceral excitement of a close encounter.
