This is one of the best areas for tracking Jane Goodall’s gorillas and the Virunga Lodge in Rwanda makes it comfortable and easy with well-trained local guides and drivers. Located in the heart of a Rwandan community, they are constantly giving back to the locals through schools, electricity and other local improvements. The gorillas were on the verge of extinction until tourism made them worthy of saving as an economic resource for the country. The genocide museum is also worth a visit. Rwandans are incredible people and the museum offers insight into one of the swiftest genocides in the history of the world. You won’t be able to help but walk away in awe of a country fighting its way back from historical horrors.
