The tourism sector in Rwanda has been put to a standstill due to the war that is happening in the neighboring Congo. Tourists therefore are stopped from going to safari the area because of the increased number of rebels in the area who may hurt them in one way or the other hence reducing the number of gorilla trekking safaris because the Congo is one of the few countries with gorillas.
The Virunga National is next to the Volcanoes of Rwanda which had threatened the tour operators in Rwanda thinking that their gorillas may also be hurt which would reduce gorilla tracking safaris in Rwanda. Fortunately the tour managers in Rwanda were so happy to hear from the Congolese people who had gone to the forest and had a report that the gorillas are safe thereby promoting more safaris to Rwanda.
The safety of the gorillas has been maintained by the high security which has been increased where the gorillas are found so as to have more gorilla safaris. However there are many things to see on your tour in Rwanda. Tourists carry out the Dian fossey hiking, genocide memorial visit, chimpanzee tracking in the Nyungwe Forest, visit to the craft centers and so many others. With all this, Rwanda safaris are always the best that a tourist can carry out to always remember.
