Imagine it is only 20 years since the genocide in Rwanda, where almost 1 million people where killed in just over there months, took place. Our first stop in Kigali was of course to see the Museum of Genocide. We also stopped at a school in the capital. Continuing on road through the country to the Volcanos National Park in the west to see the mountain gorillas and the endemic golden monkeys - what a treat. This was my first encounter with the magical mountain gorillas. We then continued along the border heading south to Gisenyi and lake Kivu where we made some stops before gearing up to cross the border into the Democratic republic of Congo.
