Musician and entrepreneur Akon Thiam alias Akon on Easter Sunday visited the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for Gorilla tracking.
Dressed in a Uganda Cranes Jersey, Akon and his wife scaled the mountains of Kisoro in south western Uganda for the experience.
Akon said he was amazed and excited by the Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and even referred to himself as “the papa of Gorillas” after his wife Rozina Negussei wished she could adopt the baby Gorilla she had seen.
“This is absolutely amazing. With all that is going on around the world with the pandemic; getting a chance to get into nature, air it all out and escape from the madness just to see our cousins is an experience like no other,” Akon
