Introduction

Come explore the "land of a Thousand Hills", a green undulating landscape of hills, lakes and tea plantations. In the north, the magnificent Virunga Mountain range dominates – a group of six towering volcanoes standing sentry along the border of Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. Here lies the Volcanoes National Park, refuge to endangered mountain gorillas. 

Apart from gorilla trekking, there are many other activities to be enjoyed in this area including forest walks, trekking golden monkeys, and a number of cultural and community tourism initiatives.
