Home to the majestic mountain gorilla, Volcanoes National Park encompasses a dramatic landscape of wildlife, rainforest, and active and extinct volcanoes. Lying in the northwest of Rwanda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda, the park boasts a famous abundance of mountain gorillas, with gorilla-tracking visits topping most tourist itineraries here. Uncover the thick rainforest paths of this dense mountain jungle, with trekking also available on some of the five Virunga Mountain volcanoes, or to the grave of acclaimed zoologist Dian Fossey. Gorilla tracking is limited; book early, and come prepared for challenging hikes.
