A guard with an AK-47 accompanies every mountain gorilla trek into the jungle of Uganda's Bwindi  Impenetrable Forest, The armed security is a contingency to scare away aggressive elephants in the jungle - elephants flee from gunshot noise when guards fire shots in the air.  The security was also introduced after two tourists were abducted during a trek several years ago.
