Rwanda Travel and Gorilla Trekking Tours promise an awe-inspiring journey that is destined to become a cherished memory of a lifetime. The heart of this expedition lies in the captivating Volcanoes National Park, where the dream of coming face-to-face with a family of habituated mountain gorillas comes to vivid life.
The remarkable resurgence of the mountain gorilla population, from around 400 individuals prior to 2019 to an impressive count of over 600, is a testament to the dedicated conservation efforts championed by luminaries like Dian Fossey and the tireless Gorilla Doctors. Rwanda, in close partnership with these conservation heroes, has witnessed this remarkable transformation, leading to the reclassification of mountain gorillas from critically endangered to endangered species. Volcanoes National Park has become the sanctuary of this thriving gorilla community.
