There are some experiences in life that simply cannot be explained and can only be experienced in the flesh. Tracking Mountain Gorillas through high altitude bamboo forest and finally glimpsing these gentle giants is one such experience! Perhaps it is their impressive size, with silverback males weighing in at two hundred kilograms, or perhaps it is their close genetic link to humans? Perhaps it is their highly endangered conservation status but whatever the reason, an encounter with these gentle giants transcends the physical and touches one on a much deeper level.

There is perhaps no better place to experience Mountain Gorillas than Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. “In the heart of Central Africa, so high up that you shiver more than you sweat,” wrote the eminent primatologist Dian Fossey, “are great, old volcanoes towering up almost 15,000 feet, and nearly covered with rich, green rainforest – the Virungas”. Situated in the far northwest of Rwanda, the Volcanoes National Park protects the steep slopes of this magnificent mountain range – home of the rare mountain gorilla – and the rich mosaic of montane ecosystems, which embrace evergreen and bamboo forest, open grassland, swamp and heath.
