They are so friendly. This is amazing to see, and the babies. I so hope they never get hunted, its heartbreaking to even think about it. These obviously have not had to deal with the nasty side of mankind as they are so so friendly...please let it stay that way. Fantastic video.

Once in a lifetime experience, lucky guys. Most animals go out of their way to avoid humans, not kill them unless they are threatened. These gorillas are wild but habituated to humans. The fact that they came into the camp shows this, gorillas who have never seen a human or a human habitation would most likely avoid contact.
