Our 3 day trip brings you the Gorillas in the Mist, the Mountain Gorillas of the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. This is where Dian Fossey (16/12/1932 – 26/12/1985) studied her gorillas. The movie Gorilla’s in the mist (1988) with Sigourney Weaver was also filmed here.The Volcanoes National Park is part of the Virunga Mountains, covering Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. There are many flights going to Kigali, and the transfer from Kigali to the Volcanoes National Park is only 2 hours. So for people who only want to see the gorillas (after a trip to for example Tanzania) this is your chance.
