Our extension includes two gorilla trekking permit's. Mountain gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park (Parc National des Volcans) is by far Rwanda's major international attraction. After the release of the feature film, Gorillas in the Mist, about the late Dian Fossey's pioneering work habituating the gorillas, interest in gorilla trekking reached new heights. There are currently twelve gorilla groups acclimated for tourist visits. Each gorilla group may be visited by up to eight tourists per day.
