Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park is situated in the Virunga Mountains in northwest Rwanda. The Virunga Mountains, among the highest in Africa, are home to the rare mountain gorilla. Gorilla trekking safaris are the park's primary attraction, but the region is also home to a diverse range of wildlife aside from the gorillas, including buffalo, hyena, duika and the rare golden monkey.

Saw 172 cats, 20 cheetah, 3 leopard, 2 serval and 147 lion. Took 1300 photos-they will take some sorting out!
