In Rwanda, Discover a Safari Like No Other

One of the best ways to protect mountain gorillas is to visit them – paradoxical though it sounds, tourism is helping to revive this endangered species one visitor at a time.

Guests trek through lush jungle trails with expert guides to seek out the great apes and then watch in awe and wonder as the ape families go about their day, revealing oh-so-humanlike behavior. Listen to see if you can pick out the 16 different sounds gorillas use to communicate. The silverback alpha male's majesty and roar are as fascinating as it is bone-chilling.
