National Geographic Travel

Photo by @FransLanting Everyone lucky enough to make contact with a mountain gorilla comes away with a powerful feeling of kinship. I captured this silverback in a pensive mood as he was sitting hunched during a downpour in the highlands of Rwanda’s Virunga Mountains, one of the last strongholds for these remarkable great apes. This image is featured in our new book “Into Africa," which is based on our @NatGeo exhibition of the same name. Follow me @FransLanting for more intimate images and videos that confirm the fundamental kinship we share with all great apes. @thephotosociety #Gorilla #MountainGorilla #GreatApes #Rwanda #wildlife
