This is where American primatologist and conservationist Dian Fossey came to study these beautiful primates. And your attendees can spend some time with them, too, watching them in their natural (uncaged!) habitat as they go about their daily lives, feeding, playing, resting, and raising their young. Going on a gorilla trek is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Spending an hour with these gorillas who, in spite of their size and appearance, are remarkably peaceful, is life-changing.
And it’s not just gorillas in Rwanda! Chimpanzee trekking is another amazing way to get up close and personal with wildlife in this beautiful country. With a guide in the Nyungwe Forest, your guests will be able to spend an hour observing chimps engage in all of their amusing antics. The heart of this gorgeous forest is like a scene from a fairytale with tall trees,
giant ferns, orchids, brightly colored birds, and butterflies. Beyond wildlife viewing, there are many opportunities here to interact with Rwandans and learn about their culture and everyday life. This country is a remarkable destination in many ways. Off the beaten path, yes, but so worthwhile!
