Right at the hub of Africa, at the centre of the Albertine Rift with its deep volcanic forces, sits Rwanda – a country with exquisite beauty as well as unsurpassed biodiversity. Rwanda bridges the forest ecosystems of the Congo basin with the great rift valleys of the east. With its biological riches of both worlds, the country offers an unparalleled concentration of biodiversity and boasts of a wide variety of wildlife. The Volcanoes National Park in northern Rwanda is home to the rare mountain gorillas where hundreds of them live in a protected area, free from poachers. A visit to Rwanda will teach of its wildlife, the country's history as well as the interesting culture- and, of course, a once in a life time contact session with the mountain gorillas.
