Coordinates : -1.499119,29.62841 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : The Mountain Gorilla, the Golden Monkeys, birds and breathtaking views on the slopes of volcanoes engulfed in clouds and fog. the poor people but definitely decent, you do not realize how it could have been so many massacres of innocents.

Recommended equipment : The gorillas are blacks, the forest is dark green, the weather is usually cloudy / foggy sometimes really dark, and can piovere.Gli animals can be active and move around in the forest: a great challenge for your fotocamera.Ideale one that works well at high ISO, a zoom lens 70-200, stabilized is better, if you use 2 bodies, think of a 24-70.La distance is always close, say they are at least 7 meters, but they will be much more closely, especially small. For close-ups need to underexpose a lot (from -2/3EV a-1EV). All freehand, unthinkable to use a tripod or monopod, would only embarrassment.'re In the middle branches, fronds, leaves dappertutto.Cambio a goal very rischio.Alcuni like gorillas in the rain .... machines picture a bit less: to bring good protection for the precious material.

Best months : the dry season lasts from June to September (high season) with January and February as good: Showers can be expected at any time of year. Temperatures are mild and is never very hot. Essential to good trekking gear, boots, waterproof pants and leggings, as well as a good rain jacket. Do not forget a pair of garden gloves, sturdy it is full of branches with thorns and stinging nettles type with ants that bite.

How to get there : in Kigali flight, then drive for about 3 hours on roads is as beautiful panoramas as feasibility

Visits : Permits to visit the Volcanoes National Park from June 1, 2012 cost 750 USD and have to be booked well in advance especially for the high season. Arrived at the entrance to the 6.30 in the morning are trained groups of 8 people and assigned to a guide. They are about 8 groups of gorillas that currently can be visited, scattered on the slopes of volcanoes, then only 64 permits to giorno.Dopo a briefing on what to have during the visit, an off-road route to reach them different starting points of the trekking that depending on the group of gorillas lasts from 1 hour to 3-4 for only salita.L 'altitude varies between 2500 and 3000 meters above sea level: You will cross farmland until you reach a wall that delimits the crops from the rainforest: find bamboo and vines of all kinds, on muddy and slippery. Joined the group, retrieving equipment (heavy backpacks carried by porters - 10 USD) and the animals have reached 60 minutes, only 60 ... for close contact. Then you fall. It is far from clear that the more distant groups give greater assurance of good foto.I permissions for Golden Monkeys cost 100 USD and there are the same times.
