Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park
Why now: The Karisoke Research Center celebrates 50 years of groundbreaking work in mountain gorilla conservation this February, and tour operators in the area will pay tribute to its creator, Dian Fossey (who was murdered at the facility 30 years ago), in a variety of ways. For example, Volcano Safaris will inaugurate a new Dian Fossey Map Room to explore the enduring legacy of the American primatologist.
What to see: Gorillas are the main attraction in this remote corner of Africa along the Rwanda-Uganda border, and safaris out to see them (as well as chimpanzees) run throughout the year.
