Volcanoes National Park – Gorilla Trekking, Golden Monkey tracking, & Birding

Volcanoes National ParkThe rain-forests of the Virunga Volcanoes are the last refuge of the Mountain Gorilla. The Virunga’s span Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, with the Volcanoes National Park being the Rwandese element of this ecosystem. The lush slopes of the volcanoes provide an appropriately dramatic natural setting for what is perhaps the most poignant and thrilling wildlife experience to be had anywhere – to see the Mountain Gorilla in its natural habitat.

Roughly half of the world’s wild population of Mountain Gorillas are resident on the Rwandan slopes of the Virungas. Five habituated families of gorillas are visited, and these families have from seven to over thirty-five individuals in each.
