Volcanoes National Park
Set on the slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes, Volcanoes National Park is the site of incredible conservation efforts that have helped save the mountain gorilla from extinction. The eminent primatologist Dian Fossey once wrote: 'In the heart of Central Africa, so high up that you shiver more than you sweat are great, old volcanoes towering up almost 15,000 feet, and nearly covered with rich, green rainforest - the Virungas'.The park's wildlife and location that make a Volcanoes National Park safari a truly life altering experience, but naturally it is the mountain gorilla trekking that steals the spotlight.
