About Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park is a national park in northwestern Rwanda. It covers 160 km2 (62 sq mi) of rainforest and includes five of the eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains, in particular Karisimbi, Bisoke, Muhabura, Gahinga and Sabinyo. It outskirts Virunga National Park in the democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. It is home to the mountain gorilla and the golden monkey, and was the base for the primatologist Dian Fossey.

1 day Rwanda gorilla tourThe recreation center was first gazetted in 1925, as a little territory limited by Karisimbi, Bisoke and Mikeno, expected to shield the gorillas from poachers. It was the absolute first National Park to be made in Africa. Along these lines, in 1929, the outskirts of the recreation center were broadened further into Rwanda and into the Belgian Congo, to shape the Albert National Park, an enormous region of 8090 km2, run by the Belgian pioneer specialists who were accountable for both.

The recreation center later turned into the base for the American naturalist Dian Fossey to do her investigation into the gorillas. She showed up in 1967 and set up the Karisoke Exploration Center among Karisimbi and Visoke. From that point on she invested the greater part of her energy in the recreation center, and is broadly credited with sparing the gorillas from extinction by carrying their situation to the consideration of the global network loonies.
