WHY VISIT RWANDA
Hands down, everyone wants to visit Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas. And it’s easy to see why: a modern conservation success story, many former poachers are now fierce and passionate protectors of these extraordinary great apes, patrolling the forest to keep them safe. As the mountain gorilla population slowly grows, authorities are mindful not to stress them or their delicate habitats in any way. This means limited permits are issued, there is a strict age limit and trekkers who are not in good health are not permitted to spend time with the gorillas, which are very susceptible to human diseases. The complexities of gorilla trekking make it vital that you use a trusted travel agent to ensure you also travel at the best possible time of year to see them.
