Volcanoes National Park is located in northwestern Rwanda, it covers around 160 kilometers squared of rainforest and encompasses five of eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains, it borders Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, it is the home to the mountain gorilla and the golden monkey.

The park was first constructed in 1925, as a small area bounded by Karisimbi, Bisoke, and Mikeno, intended to protect the gorillas from poachers, it was the very first National Park to be created in Africa.

Rwanda’s Development Board runs several activities for tourists including:                  

Gorilla visits which lasts for about one hour, Golden monkey visits, climbing of karisimbi volcano (This is a two-day trek that includes an overnight camping at an altitude of 3,800m), Climbing of bisoke volcano (Lasts for one day), tour the lakes and caves in the Volcanoes National Park, Visiting the tomb of dian fossey and visiting the cultural village tour.

The Volcanoes National Park spends the majority of revenue on maintaining the park and conserving the wildlife, the remainder goes to the government and local projects in the area to help locals benefit from the large revenue stream generated by the park.
