Rwanda

Rwanda, Land of a Thousand Hills, is home to some of the last remaining mountain gorillas on the planet. Here, deep in the heart of the dense tropical forests of Volcanoes National Park, you can observe a powerful silverback leading his troop through the undergrowth, or the touching humanity of simple moments—a distant gaze, a brotherly hug, even a laugh. Around 480 mountain gorillas live in the Virunga Mountains, where Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo meet, and seeing them is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that also supports the conservation of this critically endangered species. In 2004, Rwanda introduced an annual baby gorilla naming ceremony known as Kwita Iziina, where park guides choose names based on observed behaviors and characteristics. This has been a successful way to help raise more funds for gorilla conservation in Rwanda.

MTS offers two opportunities to see mountain gorillas in the wild, including the incredible Africa Primate Safari (including Uganda and Rwanda) and a Private Rwandan Adventure. So join us to track and observe the mountain gorillas of Volcanoes National Park, a mysteriously beautiful area where surreal volcanic mountains touch dark green, tropical forests that are often cloaked in mist.
