Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC are the only places in the world where you can see the critically endangered mountain gorilla. These incredible creatures are fearsome yet gentle, and seeing them up close in their natural habitat is an awe-inspiring experience. This safari tour visits Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda, two of the last homes of the mountain gorilla. In both the parks, you will hike through the dense forests in search of the gorillas, led by professional rangers. Once you have found them, you spend an hour in their presence, observing their fascinating behaviours and mannerisms. You will also get to see a wealth of other species on your treks, including several monkey species and a variety of bird species. Guests will also experience a visit to the Rwandan Genocide Memorial in Kigali, which stands as a tribute to those who lost their lives in 1994. A visit to a cultural village in also included in the tour, with a bonus birding excursion at the Mabamba Swamp on the last day of the tour.
