Officially you are required to keep 27-feet (10m) away from the gorillas. In practice, the gorillas often come closer to you as you stand quietly observing or photographing them. It is still helpful to have a telephoto capability on your camera since some animals are shy, and the Silverback may be very protective of the young. You are not allowed to touch the gorillas, though it would be easy to do so.
