Rwanda – Among the Gorillas
Joseph follows in the footsteps of Dian Fossey when he treks into the mountain forest of the Parc National des Volcans. Within sight of the five Virunga Range volcanoes he travels in search of Rwanda’s endangered mountain gorillas and golden monkeys. As with every Travelscope adventure, the journey includes cultural experiences in a local church, living museum, market, primary school and health clinic. In addition he takes part in Rwanda’s monthly national day of service, a program that is the heart of Rwanda’s dedication to attack the ideology of genocide at its root – ethnic division.
