Rwanda Gorilla Safari

4 days / 3 nights

Volcanoes National Park is the Rwanda section of the more extended Virunga Conservation Area shared between Uganda, Rwanda and Congo DRC. It is named after the chain of nine volcanoes which make its territory, including Karisimbi (4.507 m), Visoke, Sabinyo, Muhavura. The altitude ranges from 2400 m to the 4.000 and above of the peaks. Since 2003 the park offers the possibility to visit the families of the endangered golden monkeys. Mount Visoke hosts the tombs of the American primatologist Dian Fossey and of the gorilla cemetery. The most well known activity is the mountain gorilla tracking to one of the six habituated families. This program can be arranged for starting from Kampala or from Kigali.
