Safari vacations and travel services brings a 2 days gorilla tour in Congo which takes you to the Virunga National Park for an amazing encounter with one of man’s closest relatives. The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country blessed with wide range biodiversity. It is the only country where one can spot both mountain gorillas and eastern lowland gorillas. Apart from gorillas, Congo is also blessed with amazing rivers, mountains and flawless wilderness.
The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the only few countries where tourists can still experience unspoiled wilderness. The Virunga National Park is a good place to start in discovering the remarkable biodiversity in the county.
Virunga is the oldest game park in Congo and Africa. It was established in 1925 and is found in the eastern part of the country. The Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Mgahinga National Park in Uganda were once part of the Virunga National Park before they became separate.
The park is home to an amazing collection of wildlife but the key attraction remains the mountain gorillas and the rare okapi. Virunga National Park also attracts travelers because of the amazing Nyiragongo Volcano. Thousands of tourists visit the park each year to climb the mountain and have a glimpse of a boiling lava lake at the summit.
The park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and since 1994 has been listed as in danger for several reasons. Apart from poaching, authorities have had to deal with militia groups or rebels hiding in the park in the past with great success. The park management has recruited and trained rangers to patrol and 2 days gorilla tour Congo monitor any human encroachments in the park. This heavy deployment of Rangers has ensured that tourists remain safe while visiting the park.
Travelers can also choose to arrive and depart from Goma airport/ town. If you are interested in a longer safari, you might find our 3 days gorilla safari in Congo more fascinating.
