More than 60 percent of the world?s mountain gorillas live in verdant range of six dormant and two active volcanoes straddling the borders of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Singita has invested extensively in ecotourism projects such as the Singita Kwitonda Lodge, which allows people to explore the wonders of Rwanda?s Volcanoes National Park. Gorilla trekking permits have provided a large and crucially important source of revenue for the nation of Rwanda, and Singita will continue to work with the Rwandan government and local communities to make sure people continue to appreciate these magnificent creatures in their native habitat.

Key Takeaways:

  • The gorillas that are located in Rwanda face a grim future unless people step in to help.
  • Achieving a safe and healthy environment for these animals is really important for them.
  • Rwanda is trying to ensure that their population of gorillas is well maintained.

"The involvement of companies like Singita, who are able to support local government and communities by investing in impactful ecotourism projects in the region, is vital to the success of Rwanda?s conservation efforts."
