Track gorillas in the volcanoes national park which is the oldest national park in Africa, gazetted in 1925 purposely for the conservation of the Mountain Gorilla and visit the tomb of Diana Fossey (whose enthusiastic efforts of saving the Mountain Gorilla from extinction claimed her life in 1985) on the following day as you support the conservation project of this endangered creature. There are now 10 habituated Gorilla groups for gorilla tracking in Rwanda, which are easier to access as compared to the ones of the neighboring countries like Uganda in regards to their proximity from the respective capital cities.

As you are still astonished by these gentle creature of Volcanoes national park, the Akagera park awaits you with a lot to offer, its plethora of wildlife including buffalos, elephants, lions among others, an array of Bird species both the resident and migratory birds are yet another attraction that will bestow upon you remarkable reminiscence that will forever sweep you away from home.
