Rwanda as a travel/Safari destination, is one of the most alluring in Africa. Despite being a tiny and landlocked republic in Equatorial Africa, Rwanda has a number of unique delights to offer to adventure seekers visiting Africa. Rwanda is home to the endangered mountain gorillas that live in the Parc National des Volcans. Lying in the Virunga Conservation area where Dian Fossey dedicated her life studying the behavior of mountain gorillas, Parc national des Volcans is one of the 3 national parks where tracking of the endangered mountain gorillas can be carried out. Mountain Gorilla in Rwanda Nyungwe Forest is another notable safari destination in this tiny country. It is one of the largest montane forests in Central Africa and it is famous for golden monkey tracking and other primate trekking tours. The park is renowned for its large troops of colobus monkeys and rich variety of orchids that can be seen on a nture walk within this tropical rain forest. Rwanda is also renowned for game viewing tours! Akagera National Park, the only Savannah park in the country is worthy to visit. On a game viewing tour through this park, there are high chances of seeing the big game that include elephants, hippo and crocodile.
Unlike humans whose total population is estimated to be in billions, there are only 720 mountain gorillas remaining in the montane forests of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. Therefore a gorilla safari that will enable you to sit with a gorilla for an hour is an undisputable highlight of any trip to Africa.
