Hiking 2.5 hours into the forest (1.5 hours to return), tracking the elusive gorillas, Diane and her small group were able to get up close and personal to a full family of 16 gorillas. A silverback, multiple females, adolescents and babies, the group was able to see the entire family in their natural abode.
