Primates Mountain gorillas (and forest elephants) have been seen on the road a few kilometers away at ‘The Neck’. Chimpanzees have been very vocal as usual, and have been eating the tops of the bracken at the side of our paths. I’ve seen them four or five times in the trees at our boundary with the forest.
