Rwanda is among the best destinations in Africa for mountain Gorilla tracking safaris with its volcanoes which is found in the north west of the capital city Kigali. It is a home to eleven fully habituated mountain Gorilla families and their home range is below 5 Virunga volcanoes of Gahinga, Bisoke, Karisimbi, Muhavura and Sabyingo respectively.
Volcanoes national park is 3hrs away from Rwanda’s capital Kigali and is the tope destination for gorilla trekking with the estimated number of over 3000 mountain gorillas living in the natural habitat in the park’s tropical rainforest.
This 160km sized area of the park is also a home to the Golden monkeys and it’s also where the popular primate logist Dian Fossey set up her research laboratory to study more about the mountain Gorillas.
However, Dian Fossey’s operations came on a pause on December 26 1985 when she was brutally murdered by unknown poachers in the volcanoes national park, this didn’t become the end of her efforts to stop gorilla conservation as the organizations she set up continued operating with the hand of the Rwandan government through tourism and other donor that continued funding the Karisoke gorilla research laboratory through the Dian gorilla fund.
