rwanda wildlife highlights and what to see where
Home to one third of the world’s remaining population of endangered mountain gorillas, the rarest of the three gorilla subspecies, a Rwanda wildlife safari is often the highlight of any enthusiasts career. Tracking some of the 820 gorillas that remain in the wild through the mist as it clings to the hill forests at dawn in an unforgettable experience and, although hard work at times, one of the most rewarding wildlife safaris in Africa. The gorillas can be combined with trekking through the lush forests of Nyungwe in search of elusive chimpanzees and colobus monkeys, enjoying game drives across the open plains of Akagera or even climbing the volcanic slopes of Volcanoes National Park. Wherever you roam, you can be sure to encounter a vast array of things to see and do.
Catching your first sight of one of these amiable primates, which can weigh up to three times the size of an average human man, will leave you speechless and making contact with their soft brown eyes is a life changing wildlife encounter.
