Into the Virungas – the book

Into the Virungas photo essay book Praveen Moman Volcanoes Safaris
“Into the Virungas” photo essay book commemorates the tenth anniversary of Volcanoes Safaris Virunga Lodge in Rwanda

“Into the Virungas” is an inspiring conversation between Volcanoes Safaris founder and passionate conservationist, Praveen Moman, and Sophy Roberts, a leading travel writer. It is illustrated by a spectacular collection of photographs by Michael Turek.

The photo essay describes the humble beginnings of Volcanoes Safaris‘ work around the Virunga Volcanoes in Uganda and Rwanda when there was still conflict in the area.

It describes the work with the Batwa ‘pygmies’, the oldest inhabitants of the Central African forest near Mount Gahinga Lodge in Uganda.

It tells the story of the building of Virunga Lodge – one of the leading luxury lodges in Africa today.

For more than fifteen years Volcanoes Safaris has been at the forefront of mountain gorilla tourism. We are the only safari company to have signed the UN Kinshasa Declaration on Great Apes. This book is a tribute to this pioneering work.
