The tiny East African country of Rwanda, offers one of the most extraordinarily moving wildlife experiences on earth: the chance to track Mountain Gorillas. The misty mountains of Volcanoes National Park are home to these incredibly rare creatures, and no one who sees them in the wild will be disappointed. Astonishingly human in their actions and size, Mountain Gorillas have an undeniable lure; gazing into their liquid eyes is like gazing into another soul. A Gorilla Trekking Holiday in Rwanda combines well with spotting chimpanzees in Rwanda's beautiful Nyungwe Forest and some R&R on the shores of Lake Kivu. Rwanda can also be twinned easily with a safari in Kenya or the beaches of Zanzibar.
