Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Volcanoes National Park – Kigali

overview

Safari Highlights

First gazetted in 1925, Volcanoes National Park was the first national park in Africa, intended to protect the mountain gorillas that were discovered on the ridges of the mountains by German explorer Captain Robert von Beringe in 1902. In 1967, American naturalist Dian Fossey arrived in the park and set up her research centre, Karisoke, a combination of the names of the two mountains between which the centre was located, Karisimbi and Visoke. What is left of Karisoke can still be visited to this day. The park offers stunning scenery on a clear day, with nine volcanoes stretching into the horizon from east to west. Two of these, Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira in the Democratic Republic Congo are still active, and Nyamuragira’s red glow can often be seen reflected off low-lying clouds above the mountain. After our second gorilla track today, we head back to Kigali overnight.
