If the colour white could be described as a feeling it would be pure calm. When I embarked on this journey, which started on a nine-seater plane flying over the Arctic to remote Seal River Heritage Lodge on Canada’s Hudson Bay, I didn’t imagine that I would feel calm – rather the opposite. But the pure perfection of those first flurries of snow announcing winter and the pristine fur of the polar bears who call this region home offers immediate respite. White is a quiet colour and so are the polar bears, their paws designed to glide effortlessly and quietly across the Arctic tundra on which I find myself.

The words ‘impenetrable forest’ conjure up images of a dense undergrowth; a kaleidoscope of greens, vines and vegetation intertwined so densely it takes a machete to cut a path. This is exactly what met me at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, as I embarked on a six-hour round trek in search of the region’s famous mountain gorillas.
