Park National des Volcano.
In the heart of Central Africa, so high up that you shiver more than you sweat, ” wrote the eminent primatologist Dian Fossey, “are great, old volcanoes towering up almost 15, 000 feet, and nearly covered with rich, green rain forest – the Virungas”.
Situated in the far northwest of Rwanda, the Volcanoes National Park protects the steep slopes of this magnificent mountain range – home of the rare mountain gorillas – and the rich mosaic of montane ecosystems.
