3-day Mountain Gorilla Safari

Rwanda, commonly known as ‘The land of a thousand hills’ is beautiful country with six volcanoes, twenty-three lakes and numerous rivers, some forming the source of the great River Nile. Volcanoes National Park (also known as Parc National des Volcans in French), in northern Rwanda 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.
