A trip to Rwanda is without a doubt a life changing experience. Standing a few feet away from a mountain gorilla, looking into his/her eyes, being mesmerized by their movements, by their hands, their sounds, … I cannot think of many other travel experiences that can top a gorilla trekking. The rest of the country is a treat as well. Rwanda is known as the land of a thousand hills. A thousand beautiful, green hills. A trip to Rwanda should also include a visit of the Nyungwe Forest National Park. Not only for the beauty of this ancient forest but also for an encounter with the chimpanzees. For information on gorilla permits, visit the website of the Volcanoes National Park.
