It really is gorillas in the mist! Situated in the far northwest of Rwanda, the Parc des Volcans protects the steep slopes of the Virunga Mountains – and is the home of the rare mountain gorilla. This rich ecosystem, includes evergreen and bamboo forest, open grassland, swamp and moorland. But the high point, one of the greatest wildlife experiences possible, is the chance to spot the gentle giant gorillas as they go about their daily life, feeding, playing, resting, raising their young. You will understand why conservationists have been tracking and protecting these animals for years.
