Immerse yourself in the “land of a thousand hills” – Rwanda. Explore the past of Rwanda with a historic journey through the capital city before the pinnacle of your expedition-tracking, trekking and tackling the seemingly impenetrable forest for viewing endangered mountain gorillas. These gentle giants, which share 98% of our DNA, are found in Volcanoes National Park, home to mountain gorilla, golden monkeys, spotted hyena, buffaloes, elephants, black-fronted duiker, and bushbuck; the park also harbors 178 bird species.
The mountain gorillas are reached after a trek of three to eight hours up and through the rain forest. Participants should be in good health and able to sustain a slow climbing pace. The effort, however, earns amazing rewards!
