Rwanda is commonly known as the land of hills, covered in small but very many hills that bring out the beauty and the specialty in a small place. It prides its self in the Gorillas that a few hours’ drive away from the Kigali city.
Gorilla trekking is the main draw card of a Rwandan safari. After arriving at the capital city of Kigali, you are only a few hours’ drive away from the legendary Volcanoes National Park and its habituated but still wild gorilla families.
The Gorillas of Rwanda are in the Virunga Volcanoes; too much effort has been put in conserving. This all started by the late Dian Fossy who started the Gorillas for about 19+ years. Gorillas in the Mist movie was also filmed as a way of conserving the gorillas in Virungas rain forest.
Due to the covid 19 pandemic the Rwanda gorilla safari were put on hold for some months to protect them from the deadly disease. We share the same DNA to up to 98% meaning all the diseases that get a human being can easily get you.
Uganda still locked down and not even a single glimpses of the gorillas even if they open because of our strict conservation laws. For a swift safari a combination of other East African destinations in Uganda, Kenya or Tanzania would be perfect like the Uganda Rwanda Gorilla safari.
