This six-day journey explores the impenetrable forest of Bwindi National Park in search of the endangered mountain gorillas that call it home. Two mornings are spent tracking the gorillas in their natural habitat, in the company of multi-award-winning photographer Scott Portelli. Scott is there to assist you in taking the perfect images of these great apes, come rain or shine – he knows the best time, angles and camera settings to get great shots during your limited time with them.
Scott has spent thousands of hours in remote locations across the globe, filming and photographing wildlife both on land and at sea. A member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), he is regarded as a leading professional in his field, having reached the finals of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards and submitted winning images to the Sony World Photography Awards, Asferico International Nature Photography Awards and Travel Photographer of the Year Awards, among many other accolades.
On this safari you can spend up to an hour with the gorillas each day, and with the option of a third trek, you'll have plenty of opportunity to capture some incredible images. The afternoons are not wasted, as you'll learn how to edit your images professionally with expert guidance from Scott.
