Dian Fossey

Red Rocks Campsite near Ruhengeri

When we arrived in the North of Rwanda, where a couple of volcanos along the border to DR Congo and Uganda are part of the Volcanos NP, we first saw nothing, as the clouds were hanging very low. But the next day, when we drove up to Kinigi to visit the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, we suddenly had them in front of us.

We were really impressed, with the quality of the exhibition, which included a 360 degree cinema and a virtual reality visit of the gorillas. The small restaurant provided a lovely lunch after the visit.

We did some shopping in Ruhengeri, before we drove to the border the next day to leave Rwanda and continue our journey in Uganda.
