Rwanda

Animals

Without a doubt, the number-one attraction for all visitors to Rwanda, an encounter with the enigmatic mountain gorillas, is simply magical. It’s possible to track the mountain gorillas in Parc National des Volcans throughout the year. Bookings should be made with the ORTPN office in Kigali.

While not as popular as the gorillas, endangered golden monkeys can also be tracked in Parc National des Volcans

Chimpanzee tracking is beginning to take off at Nyungwe, though sightings are not as common as in Uganda as habituation is still ongoing. There are also huge troops of colobus monkeys in Nyungwe that are easy to spot from the well-marked walking trails that cut through the forest.
