Rwanda Safari Attractions in Volcanoes National Park

[metaslider id=”1010″]
Majorly, Volcanoes National Park is notably known for Mountain Gorillas scientifically known as Gorilla beringei beringei. Noted to be descendants of Old World Monkey, the Mountain gorillas are among the two sub species of the eastern gorilla. They occur in two populations with one thriving in the Virunga massif where Volcanoes National Park is a member along with Uganda’s Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Congo’s Virunga National Park while another thrives in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park Uganda.
Mountain Gorillas are rare animals living in fragile habitats and with low birth rates which explains their listing as critically endangered on the red list of International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Apparently, the global population of Mountain Gorillas is estimated at 880 individuals.
