Driving from the airport to the lodge builds the excitement for what is a very special safari.  As you leave Kigali (the capital city), and head up towards the Virunga Mountains (which is made up of a chain of volcanoes), you get a good sense for what you are in for – good people, great scenery and a lot to see and do.  Arriving at the lodge, you are greeted by 3 of the 5 volcanoes that make up the National Park where the gorillas are found, and looming large behind the lodge, is a fourth.  We took some time to snap a few images from the camp, in preparation for the next day’s 1st gorilla trek!
