In the mist

It’s 4:30 am, and we drive from Kigali towards the Parc National des Volcans – Africa’s oldest national park. The journey takes three hours until we arrive at the only place in the world where one can still watch Mountain Gorillas in the wild. Established in 1925 with the purpose of protecting its population of Mountain Gorillas, the Parc National des Volcans is dominated by six extinct volcanos. It’s an important party on a cross-border conservation policy that includes Uganda’s Virunga National Park and Congo’s Mgahinga National Park. The Gorillas are critically endangered, and their precise habitat requirements mean this is the only place on earth where one can still find these creatures – there are only about 800 left in the world.
