The country is home to 10 families of these magnificent apes that are led by a large dominant silverback male. The precious 60 minutes of your wilderness trip that you spend in their company will leave an indelible impression of fascination and awe. Watch them as they forage for food or groom one another, oblivious to your presence.

As you spend time with them, you will understand the enduring love that Dian Fossey had for them. Visit her grave to pay homage to her life and dedication to these amazing creatures.

Also, located within the park are the Ngezi Crater Lake, or the three breathtakingly scenic lakes of Ruhondo, Burera, and Karago. To interact with the human inhabitants of this amazing Eden on earth, you must visit the Iby'Iwacu Village for a cultural tour of Rwanda. Peek into their age-old customs and traditions and take part in their music and dance forms before moving on to explore the natural rock formations in the Musanze Caves.

When staying at Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel during your gorilla trekking safari in Rwanda, we recommend combining it with Akagera, Nyungwe and a city tour of Kigali. You may optionally extend out to other wilderness areas of Gishwati-Mukura ending with a beach vacation at Lake Kivu or even extending out to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar or Lamu, or even Mombasa.
