Volcanoes and Gorillas

in Virunga


The Democratic Republic of Congo is home to Virunga National Park, an incredible destination that very few tourists have seen. It's really the only place in the DRC that we recommend visiting at this time, but we highly recommend it! Virunga is inspiring – it is Africa’s oldest national park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the continent’s most biologically diverse protected area. It is also home to a quarter of the world’s approximately 900 remaining mountain gorillas. This itineray immerses you in Virunga and includes gorilla trekking, a visit to the Senkwekwe gorilla orphange, a night spent at the edge of the world's largest lava lake and 2 nights relaxing on the shores of Lake Kivu.
