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, duiker and the rare golden monkey.
