Kakano - Silverback of the Bweza Family of Gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

Kakano, the silverback of the Bweza family of gorillas that we visited on our gorilla trek, was busily occupied eating leaves during our entire hour’s visit. He was not perturbed one bit during my close encounter with him, either. It was, in fact, as if he could care less. Good thing for me! Guess he was having too good a time watching the young ones swing in the trees, fight each other, and smack into and grab the legs of the human visitors. What a fabulous time!
