The tiny East African republic of Rwanda is covered in lush, cool mountains and the peaks in the Volcanoes National Park reach high above the clouds, providing a large natural habitat for the legendary mountain gorillas.
Treks into the forests to see the gorillas are the major attraction for any visitor to Rwanda, and provide vital income for the country and for the conservation efforts for the region, as well as of course an unforgettable experience for the traveller!
The country is also famous for the tragic genocide in 1994, a brutal chapter in a complex rivalry between the Hutu and Tutsi tribal groupings, and we will visit the incredibly moving memorial centre in the capital of Kigali.
