As of mid-1997 it was safe, despite the massive upheavals in the region, to visit Rwanda overland from Uganda or Tanzania to see the gorillas in the Parc National des Volcans (via Kigali). The most important thing to bear in mind is that this is Africa, and in Africa things change rapidly. It’s not enough to simply assume that things will still be all right now. Rwanda has become indelibly etched into the consciousness of the late 20th century as focus of one of the world’s most horrific attempts at genocide. Nighttime curfew exists in many places around the country and local soldiers have orders to shoot at sight.

Nyungwe Forest ranks as one of Rwanda’s foremost attractions and is one of the largest protected mountain rainforests in Africa. Parc National des Volcans is close along the boarder of Congo (Zaïre) and Uganda and is one of the most beautiful sights in Africa. There is a chain of volcanoes, one more than 4’500 m high. The bamboo and rainforest-covered slopes provide one of the last remaining sanctuaries of the mountain gorilla (gorilla beringei). There are four known groups, Dian Fossey’s account of her years with the gorillas and the battle with poachers and government officials, “Gorillas in the Mist”, makes fascinating readings.
