About this listing
For those who have any remote knowledge of gorillas will have heard of Gorillas in the Mist, the film about the life of Dian Fossey, played by actress Sigourney Weaver. The Gorillas in the Mist film tells the story of Dian Fossey, an American primatologist who leaves the States and heads over to Africa to study and protect gorillas.
Now, you can go on your own Gorillas in the Mist adventure on this 3 day Lake Bunyonyi Gorilla Safari and Gorillas in the Mist experience in Uganda. This gorilla safari in Uganda features a gorilla trek in the misty mountains followed by a night spent on the shores of the gorgeous Lake Bunyonyi.
