Gorillas in Rwanda or Uganda?

Few animals have sparked the imagination of man as much as the Gorilla, the largest of the living primates. Most Gorillas live in inaccessible regions in various dense forests in tropical Africa, one subspecies, the Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) lives within only four national parks in the world, one inhabits the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda (2006 census recorded 30), the second is in a mountainous region referred to as the Virungas, which includes Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Uganda, Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda and Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo DRC (2010 census recorded 480).

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
