The primary reason to host a safari in Rwanda is to visit the endangered mountain gorillas.
Nearly every serious wildlife enthusiast has the aspiration to stand a few feet away from these magnificent creatures and have a picture taken with these gentle giants in the background.
Once one decides to trek the gorillas, one should be in a physically fairly fit condition and should obtain the correct necessary permits well in advance in order to avoid disappointment.
