Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff seems to be having the best days of their lives in South Africa.
All throughout their trip, they interact and see wild animals up-close like elephants, giraffes, hyenas, and a lot more.
Just take a look at their Instagram posts, all of it are not just Insta-worthy but also National-Geographic-worthy.
Erwan’s earlier post caught the attention of a lot of celebrities and netizens. It was a video of their epic encounter with a silverback gorilla.
That particular species are known to be the rarest gorillas and are only found in the mountains and protected parks in Africa.
In Erwan’s video, the gorilla came right beside them trying to walk away. According to the vlogger’s caption, the hand of the gorilla felt like something fell on him.
Check out this heart-racing encounter:

When a silverback comes your way (this was the number 2 in the family) you make yourself as small as possible and stand your ground. I had nowhere to go so I just clenched every fiber in my body, ready for the hit. At first I thought the lady behind fell on my side, but I then realized that she managed to get behind me and that body check I felt actually came from the gorilla. SURREAL. I can now say that I've been trunked by an elephant and brushed aside by a silverback. I need to get bitten by something now, like a big cat. P.S I can now also say that I (unwillingly) put myself between this giant and my wife @annecurtissmith to protect her. #silverbackgorilla #Rwanda #africananimals
