He's very big.
– Rhys Darby on encountering a silverback gorilla
We trekked through the bush for about three hours hacking our way with machetes and with every step the adrenaline and the excitement mounted. Finally through a clearing I saw high up in a tree my first wild gorilla. There he was sitting there staring at me. He was the 'lookout' for the group and had known we were coming for about an hour. I just froze and this overwhelming feeling of fear mixed with surprise came over me.
– Rhys Darby on the most memorable part of his trip to Rwanda, TVNZ website
