At Trek Africa Expeditions, we specialize in crafting wild Rwanda gorilla safaris, offering travelers the opportunity to delve into the untamed beauty of this remarkable country. Our tour packages are designed to immerse you in the wild, and this particular adventure takes you on an exploration of the Diana Fossey graves amidst the majestic mountains, all while embarking on an unforgettable quest to track the endangered mountain gorillas.
Dian Fossey’s remarkable journey began in San Francisco in 1932. As a child of divorced parents, she grew up alongside her mother and stepfather. Dian exhibited an insatiable passion for animals from an early age and excelled as a student. Her fascination with animals blossomed during her teenage years, particularly her love for horseback riding. In college, she initially pursued a business-focused path, encouraged by her wealthy stepfather. However, a transformative experience working on a Montana ranch during a college summer break kindled her love for animals. This pivotal moment led her to shift her academic focus to pre-veterinary studies at the University of California.
Despite facing academic challenges, Dian persevered. Eventually, she obtained a degree in occupational therapy from San Jose State College in 1954.
By participating in our wild gorilla safaris in Rwanda, you not only embark on an extraordinary adventure but also contribute to the conservation efforts and growth of the gorilla population in Rwanda. We encourage our clients to visit Rwanda and support the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund organization, dedicated to protecting these magnificent creatures and their habitat.
Rwanda welcomes tourists year-round. While the wet months extend from March to May and September to November, the dry months encompass June to August and December to February. Each season offers a unique experience, allowing you to choose the one that aligns best with your preferences.
