Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda's Virungas is one of the most special wildlife encounters in the world.

Hike through the mist-covered bamboo rainforest and gaze deeply into the soulful brown eyes of endangered mountain gorillas—the largest-living primate on the planet.

In addition to gorilla trekking, spend a morning observing Rwanda's golden monkeys. Savor local Rwandan coffee, try banana wine, and participate in a cooking class at an inspiring nonprofit based in Kigali.

Gorilla tourism brings significant income annually to communities in Rwanda. Through responsibly planned visits, local people find a strong incentive to protect these animals and their habitats. It’s a win-win situation for both people and wildlife.

If you want to broaden your horizons and go to exotic places all while feeling taken care of and in good hands I recommend Gondwana Tours. I truly enjoyed the mix of luxury, rugged adventure, great food and enough swank to keep my whole family happy at every turn.
