Our exhibit in Musanze, Rwanda, is currently closed to prevent further spread of the coronavirus and to protect our staff and the gorillas we monitor. We anticipate that the exhibit will once again be open to the public once government regulations allow for indoor gatherings.
We look forward to welcoming you back once it is safe to do so. For more information please email: [email protected]

Visitors come to see the mountain gorillas of Rwanda from all over the world. Many also come to visit the Fossey Fund in Musanze, at the Karisoke Research Center, where we have a public exhibit space, laboratories, gorilla information, and offices. Everyone who comes to Rwanda or the Democratic Republic of Congo is enchanted by the national parks, the wildlife, and of course … the people. Through photos, blog entries, journal notes, and correspondence, we invite you to enjoy the stories of those who have travelled deep into the forest in the quest to see wild gorillas. And, we invite you to contribute your own story, too. View stories
