For those who aren’t on Facebook, here are some fabulous shots of relaxed and prolonged encounter with an African Golden Cat after a gorilla hike in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (thank you Tomer for spotting this).
Patrick Gijsbers took the pictures and said “I just visited the gorilla’s, and this was the highlight of the day for me. Stupid of me that i didn’t have my camera ready for a good shot. Though i managed to make some shots. I have been bouncing around for the rest of the day. 😀
I was with around 8 people. The cat was about 50 meters in front our van. It was totally relaxed while crossing the road. It noticed us and just decided to cross. Nothing scared or running. I saw it for about 20 seconds. Shots where taken through the glass of the window of the car.”
Has anyone else been to Bwindi and – if so – did any of the guides ever mention Golden Cats?
