volcanoes-national-park in rwandaThere are a range of conservation strategies ranging from ecological, economical to cultural approach. All these have been exercised in different protected areas and have had both positive and negative implications. But of recent, the cultural approach has proved to be more effective and sustainable. Volcanoes National Park also referred to as Parc Nationale des Volcanoes in French is one of Rwanda’s prime safari destinations usually encountered on Rwanda safari. Volcanoes is an enjoinment of the Virunga protected area and thus a home of mountain gorillas which makes it famous for gorilla trekking in Rwanda. It provides a strong core and acts as a selling preposition for wildlife safaris or chimpanzee trekking safaris in the adjacent Akagera and far most Nyungwe national parks respectively. This makes it to be added on the list of travellers while planning their safaris to Rwanda. Volcanoes National Park is quick to realize the strength of this new management approach. It has recruited the former poachers and trained them to take up positions in the thriving eco-tourism trade. This is to be achieved by allocating a portion of the tourist fees paid for gorilla trekking to community projects so as to assist the former poachers identify alternative sources of livelihood that are in good terms with the environment. This will in turn ensure species survival thus sustaining safaris in Rwanda or position its self in the market as a marketing technique only to end up increasing safaris to Rwanda.
