Volcanoes National Park
Volcanoes National Park in north western Rwanda is home to the country’s biggest tourist attraction, the Mountain Gorilla’s. Created in 1925 to protect the gorillas, this is Africa’s oldest national park and it is a premier destination for the primate experience. The Volcanoes National Park is part of the Virunga Mountain Range and is home to 5 of the 8 volcanoes in the Virunga’s, the Karisimbi, Bisoke, Muhabura, Gahinga and Sabyinyo. Full of mystery and history, this mountain range is a great place to visit. The gorilla’s are not the only attraction, you can track the Golden Monkey’s and see some of the best birdlife on the continent. Made famous to the western world by Dianne Fossey, an American primatologist who efforts towards the research and conservation of the Mountain Gorilla brought a spotlight to the region.
