Visiting mountain gorillas is a must-do for any traveler to Rwanda, but these noble creatures are not the only ones who will fill you with awe, should you choose to explore more of the country’s natural riches.
Rwanda is unique in its biodiversity, providing unparalleled birdwatching opportunities with its 670 avian species. Rwanda offers traditional safari animals such as lions, elephants and giraffes, but it may be most famous for its primates. Nyungwe Forest’s thriving troop of Ruwenzori black-and-white colobus is the largest primate community in all of Africa, and the Virunga Mountains on Rwanda’s northwestern border are the only place in the world to see the endangered golden monkey.
