Like a phoenix rising from its turbulent past, Rwanda is a surprising and breathtakingly beautiful country. This five day journey explores the misty mountains of the Virunga Volcanoes National Park, in search of the endangered mountain gorillas that call it home. Two mornings are spent trekking the gorillas in their natural habitat in the company of award-winning wildlife photographer Scott Portelli. Scott is there to assist you in taking the perfect images of these great apes; come rain or shine, he knows the best time, angles and camera settings to get great shots during your limited time with them.
You can spend up to an hour with the gorillas each time, and with the option of a third trek, you will have plenty of opportunities to capture some incredible images. The afternoons are not wasted, as you will learn how to edit your images professionally with expert guidance from Scott.
