Congo Gorilla Tours
Take Congo Gorilla tours and go Gorilla trekking in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This is one of the less explored treasures in Africa though it hosted Africa’s protected areas. Go on a Gorilla safari in Congo and explore the less explored Gorilla habitat of Virunga National Park or Kahuzi Biega National Park for mountain Gorillas and Lowland Gorillas respectively.
Virunga National Park is the only place where you can see Mountain Gorillas in Congo. The park is in the northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa) created in 1925. 8 Gorilla families have been habituated in the park for Gorilla trekking. These groups have been made familiar to human presence.
These groups are Kabirizi, Rugendo, Humba, Mapuwa, Bageni, Lulengo, Munyaga and Nyakamwe Gorilla families. All groups are open for trekking with each permit costing US$ 450 to spend a maximum of 1 hour in the presence of the Mountain Gorillas.
Within Virunga are also two active volcanoes namely Mount Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira. Mount Nyiragongo is an active stratovolcano with an elevation of 3,470 m above sea level. It is one of the most memorable lifetime activities to undertake. Imagine hiking and spending a night at the top of an active volcano.
On Long Gorilla Safaris in Congo, combining a Gorilla trekking experience with a hike to Mount Nyiragongo is one of the popular options.
The country is also lucky to have both Mountain Gorillas and the Lowland Gorillas found in Kahuzi Biega National Park. You can also take your Gorilla safari in Congo by trekking the Lowland Gorillas that are even easier to trek.
