4 Days Gorilla tracking and Dian Fossey

4 Days Gorilla tracking & Dian Fossey

4 Days Gorilla Trekking Tour Rwanda and visit the Dian Fossey Graveyard in Volcanoes national park located at Karisoke research center. Dian Fossey grave an American primatologist who dedicated her live conserving the lives of the mountain gorillas until she was killed and is buried there next to Digit, a mountain gorilla.

This hike is an incredible experience physically, emotionally and intellectually. It is so inspiring to learn about someone who was so dedicated and left a legacy that exists even today. The hike involves moving through the forests and hiking up the slopes and therefore requires some relative degree of fitness and patience.

At the site you will find the house from where Dian Fossey was mysteriously murdered in 1985 but the more peaceful is the place where she was buried just next to her favorite gorilla friend, Digit and about 20 other mountain gorillas either killed by poachers or suffered death for other reasons.

On several occasions, hiking to Dian Fossey grave yard› is one as a complement to other tourism activities in Rwanda which include gorilla trekking, golden monkey tracking, volcano hiking, caving and a visit to Bulere and Buhondo twin lakes.
