World Travels, Marc & Peggy Faucher


Rwanda and the Congo, 2017

In July of 2017 we visited Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to see gorillas and other wildlife. We were able to see mountain gorillas in both countries as well as Eastern lowland gorillas in the DRC. Along the way we saw a variety of primates including Eastern chimpanzees, Blue Monkeys and Golden Monkeys. Read more about our visit in our blog posts at "Our Closest Living Relatives", "The Largest Living Primates!" "Long Live Africa's Oldest National Park!" and "A Window into the Center of the Earth!"
