Gorillas are among the most famous attractions which bring travellers to East Africa. There are two major subspecies of gorillas, the mountain gorillas and the lowland gorillas. The mountain gorillas are listed as endangered with only about 900 mountain gorillas surviving to date. The mountain gorillas inhabit the virunga region strecthing between 3 countries the Democratic republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda. Some of the national parks where one can see the mountain gorillas include the Volcanoes national park in Rwanda, the Bwindi national park in Uganda, and the Virunga national park in Congo.
