Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park is a national park in northwestern Rwanda. It covers 160 km2 (62 sq mi) of rainforest and encompasses five of the eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains, namely Karisimbi, Bisoke, Muhabura, Gahinga and Sabyinyo. It borders
Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. It is home to the mountain gorilla and the golden monkey, and was the base for the primatologist Dian Fossey. The park was first gazetted in 1925, as a small area bounded by Karisimbi, Bisoke and Mikeno mountains, intended to protect the gorillas from poachers. It was the very first National Park to be created in Africa.
