Gorilla Adventure

Around half the world's population of Mountain Gorillas live deep in the mist-shrouded forests of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. One of life's most amazing experiences is a close encounter with these gentle creatures. Park regulations allow one hour with gorilla families or individuals that have been habituated to human presence. That said, these primates are incredibly shy and it is an absolute privilege to watch them feed, play and interact. We trek through bamboo thickets in search of them, sometimes walking up to eight hours, but the reward is such a special experience it will be unforgettable. We also have an opportunity to look for endangered Golden Monkeys in their natural environment on a separate excursion. This short adventure can be taken on its own or added to a longer East African itinerary.
