Rwanda Gorilla Safaris

About a third of the world’s approximately 800 remaining mountains gorillas live in Rwanda.

  • A group of habituated gorillas in Rwanda have become used to visitors and are nonchalant to human presence.

  • Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park is named for the string of jungle-draped volcanoes inside its borders.

  • Our Expedition Leader is both a primate naturalist and accomplished photographer who will guide you in photographing chimpanzees and more.

While Rwanda has seen tremendous tragedy, this small country is also a place of immense beauty and continued healing. An important part of its revival is its wildlife ecotourism, centered on the rare and remarkable mountain gorilla that lives in the dense forests of the volcanic Virungas range in the northwest. About a third of the world’s approximately 800 remaining mountains gorillas live in Rwanda. Your visit to their natural habitat may be the only hope for their future. A once-in-a-lifetime encounter with the rare mountain gorilla will surely change your life—and it may well save theirs.
