Gorillas in the Mist: An Adventure in Rwanda
Faculty Host: Dr. Ellen Kraly, professor of geography and environmental studies, emerita

March 2-10, 2025

Join fellow alumni in this once-in-a-lifetime trip to see the last remaining apes in Rwanda, affectionately called the "Land of a Thousand Hills." Just over 1,000 mountain gorillas still make their home in the primeval forests of central Africa. Our itinerary enables you to intimately experience these animals and other primates in their natural habitat, while learning first-hand about the history and cultural heritage of this fascinating country.
