A gorilla trek is electrifying. Hiking through lushly sloping hills and spotting a gorilla peeking out from the bush, or happening upon a mother watching over her babies is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that changes you forever. On an Jumbo Tours and Safaris journey you venture to one of the best places on earth to track gorillas, the exciting Parc National de Volcans (PNV). This 62-square-mile game park is home to the last surviving mountain gorillas as well as the endangered golden monkey, a species of Old World monkey with a golden-orange patch on his upper flanks and back.
PNV is also one of Rwanda's conservation epicenters, where visitors see the burial place of legendary scientist Dian Fossey and visit the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, which continues her legacy of research and gorilla advocacy. Outside of the park you experience Rwandan life at its best in its vibrant, bustling local markets.
The country continues to work towards overcoming its turbulent past. Many churches have been converted to places for paying respect to those who died in the 1994 genocide. The extensive, world-renowned Kigali Genocide Memorial has welcomed hundreds of thousands of young people, politicians and visitors from around the world.
