More impressive even than the gorillas size and bearing is their unfathomable attitude to their daily human visitors
almost everybody who visits the gorillas experiences an almost mystical sense of recognition, writes Philip Briggs in Bradts Rwanda of the countrys most popular residents. Fifteen years on from the tragic genocide of 1994, Rwanda is rapidly emerging as one of Africas most exciting ecotourism destinations, with three diverse national parks. Bradts Rwanda is the only English-language guidebook dedicated to the country, and this updated fourth edition lists the newest hotels, tours, activities, operators and, of course, information on how to track its famous mountain gorillas.
A new edition of the only dedicated guidebook available to Rwanda, with all you need to know about gorilla tracking plus detailed coverage of offbeat and lesser-known attractions.
