The morning began early. At 4:30am our guide Gerald from Primate Safaris picked us up in a dark green Land Cruiser and we drove 90km northwest from Kigali to Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. We were on our way to trek through the rainforest to see the critically endangered mountain gorillas. Sharing 95% of our genes, there are only 880 gorillas left in the wild and only a handful of people have the opportunity to see them in their natural environment.
