3-day Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Trek
Rwanda, known as ‘The land of a thousand hills’ is a beautiful country with six volcanoes, twenty-three lakes and numerous rivers, some forming the source of the River Nile. Volcanoes National Park (also known as Parc National des Volcans in French), is home to the world’s largest number of endangered Mountain Gorillas. The gorillas can be viewed in their natural mountain habitats through organized gorilla tours at a very close range.
The Mountain Gorilla is only found on the mountains of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo and are listed as one of the top 10 most endangered species on Earth. There are approximately 350 gorillas in the Volcano and Virunga Mountains of Rwanda and Congo and another separate group of approximately 300 in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. There are no Mountain Gorillas living outside of their native mountain forest home or in captivity.
