While Rwanda remains scarred by the genocide of 1994, in recent years the situation has improved dramatically with much of the infrastructure rebuilt, the economy resurrected and tourism beginning to thrive once more.

Of particular importance to the tourism industry is the presence of approximately half of the world's wild population of mountain gorillas, which are resident on the Rwandan slopes of the vast volcanic Virunga conservation area stretching into Uganda and The Congo.

Original Travel have visited the finest places to stay near the Parc National des Volcans in Northwest Rwanda, where there are seven habituated families of gorillas - with between seven and 40 individuals in each family.

Aside from gorilla trekking, Original Travel can arrange exploration of the surrounding lakes, or visits to the market town of Ruhengeri, the Karisoke Research Centre established by Dian Fossey and the deeply poignant but fascinating genocide memorials.
