EXPERIENCE: VIRUNGA GORILLAS
This Gorilla Safari is an amazing chance to visit a country that few tourists see. Start your adventure in Virunga National Park, in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, on the border of Uganda and Rwanda.
Our Gorilla Safaris begin in Africa’s oldest and most biologically diverse protected area, known as Virunga National Park. The park’s 7800 km² includes forests, swamps, savannahs, erosion valleys, active volcanoes, lava plains and the glaciated peaks of the Rwenzori mountains. This relatively undiscovered gem, is home to about a quarter of the world’s critically endangered mountain gorillas. Trek through this vast and beautiful forest to meet the gorillas. Then climb one of the many volcanoes, sleeping in a sunnit hut for the night. After this epic gorilla safari adventure, you will fly to the highlands of northern Kenya. Here you will see the endangered rhino at Solio and the Grevy Zebra at Sasaab. Spend your days on game drives, walks, horse riding and fly-camping in the wilderness. Finally, you will return to Nairobi and unwind at the iconic Giraffe Manor.
