Gorilla Trekking in the 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, encounter golden monkeys and other engaging wildlife. Travel by boat across Lake Kivu, one of the Great African lakes, renowned for its scenic beauty. Savor local Rwandan coffee, sip 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 and Uganda. 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.
