The 13,000 hectare Volcanoes National Park (Parc National des Volcans) was designated with National Park status in 1925 and protects the Rwandan portion of the Virunga Mountains, a range of six extinct and three active volcanoes that forms the border with Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Sitting between 3474m and 4507m altitude, the park is home to over half of the regions surviving 650 mountain gorillas. Immortalised in the film “Gorillas in the Mist”, the biographical account of primatologist Dian Fossey which was set and shot in the park, Volcanoes National Park is the place to experience the most intimate and poignant of wildlife encounters – tracking the four habituated gorilla families.
