In Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, a family of mountain gorillas, led by a silverback, munches on leaves just meters away from you. This is their last remaining forest habitat, and travellers can visit them now that peace has returned to this country. One of the most incredible wilderness experiences available anywhere, and it takes a specialist to get it right.

Expert trackers will accompany you on a hike into the mountains to see gorilla families in their natural habitat. Aside from trekking to see gorillas, other popular walking trails in this park include one to the tomb of Dian Fossey, the famous murdered gorilla researcher immortalised in the Hollywood film Gorillas in the Mist.
Rwanda has been plagued by civil war and genocide for years, and this backdrop is never far away. Everyone visiting Kigali should visit the excellent Kigali Genocide Memorial Center museum to learn about the country’s tragic history.
At least 13 other primates can be found in Rwanda’s Nyungwe Forest National Park, located just two hours south of the capital city. Visitors can meet black-and-white Angola colobus monkeys, chirpy baboons, grey-cheeked mangabeys, and curious vervet monkeys on a 197-foot-high canopy walk through the lush mountain forest. These fantastic creatures will have you laughing and staring at them in awe.
