Sleek Silverbacks: Tune Into the Gorillas of Rwanda
A family of mountain gorillas, led by a silverback, munches on leaves just meters away from you in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. This is their last remaining forest habitat, and thanks to peace returning to this country, travelers can visit them. This surely ranks as one of the most extraordinary wilderness experiences anywhere, and it takes a specialist to get it right. Enchanting Travels consultants are committed to crafting an unforgettable Rwanda itinerary for you. Reach out to us, to seal the deal on an exceptional holiday. On the ground, expert trackers will help you hike into the mountains to see gorilla families in their natural environment. Besides trekking to meet gorillas, other famous walking trails in this park include one to the tomb of the famous murdered gorilla researcher Dian Fossey, immortalized in the Hollywood movie Gorillas in the Mist.
For years, civil war and genocide have marred life in Rwanda, and this background is never far away. In the capital Kigali, everyone should stop at the fine Kigali Genocide Memorial Center museum to learn about the country’s tragic history.
At least 13 other primates live in Rwanda’s Nyungwe Forest National Park just two hours south of the capital city. A 197-foot-high canopy walk takes visitors through the lush mountain forest to meet black-and-white Angola colobus monkeys, chirpy baboons, grey-cheeked mangabeys, or curious vervet monkeys. These wonderful creatures will have you laughing and staring right back at them in awe.
