"How does one describe such an experience that leaves you so speechless?"

Lewis Hamilton continued his summer vacation across Africa in Rwanda and shared his "moving experience" with the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

"My second stop was Rwanda. We were welcomed with smiles and music from the beautiful Rwandan people," Hamilton wrote in a lengthy caption alongside a carousel of photos and videos of his visit.

"We hiked up through beautiful green fields where children would sing to us and up a volcano where we found Gorillas. What a sight it was to see them in their natural habitat, relaxed and protected by the community around them," he added.


Hamilton kicked off his F1 break in Namibia, where he and a group of his friends went on a hot air balloon ride.

"This year, I'm spending my summer break doing something I've wanted to do for years. I'm finally tracing my roots through Africa, and guys, to say this journey has been a grounding experience is an understatement," he wrote on Instagram.

The Formula One season commences with the Belgian GP on 28 August.
