Mwirima is the silverback of the Rushegura family group. We trekked through heavy jungle to reach them and then there they were; relaxed, playful and happy to allow us to share their life. Nothing can describe the magic of watching these proud creatures or the breathtaking delight of sharing their world. The knowledge and humanity in his eyes speaks more than any description can.
