Current Safety Situation?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are currently scheduled to visit the gorillas in Rwanda next week (!!!), but have been hearing about the rebel fighting just over the hill in eastern Congo. Should we be worried? Should we cancel? Has anyone of you out there been there recently or are there now? If so, please let us know what the situation is like and if you think it is safe. We really really really want to go, but safety first! Thanks so much!
