Our Guide to Gorilla Trekking

Virungas and northern Rwanda

The Virunga Mountain range spans Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Parc National des Volcans, known more commonly as the Volcanoes National Park, is located in north-western Rwanda and is best known for its beautiful volcanoes and resident mountain gorilla population.

Africa's oldest national park, established in 1925, and its mountain gorillas were first made famous through the research work of Diane Fossey who spent two decades researching the magnificent primates. The Volcanoes National Park is lucky to have more than half of the world’s mountain gorillas, and is probably the best place in Africa to see them. There are currently seven habituated families of gorillas in the park, visitors are able to spend time with one of these families, ranging from seven to thirty-five individuals.
