Travel with Africa Adventure Safaris for exceptional Congo gorilla safaris at pocket friendly rates. Gorilla tours to Congo are exceptional in a way that travelers have a chance to meet and interact with two gorilla species unlike in other destination. Gorilla trekking can be done in Virunga national park for mountain gorillas or eastern lowland gorillas in kahuzi biega national park. Also, the two gorilla trips can be combined to ensure a more magical gorilla encounter.
Whereas Congo mountain gorilla safaris have been hindered by kidnaps and killing of travelers and park rangers, some peace has been restored and gorilla trekking is done in the company of armed rangers. Eastern Lowland gorilla treks in Kahuzi Biega national park give you the chance to trek the world’s largest gorilla specie. The pre gorilla trekking rules and regulations in Congo are similar to those in Uganda and Rwanda for the safety of the endangered primates and clients. Besides mountain gorillas, Congo is a center for volcano hiking safaris to Mount Nyiragongo whose summit hosts the world’s largest lava lake. Travelers have an opportunity to hike and peep into the largest lava lake with bubbling fumes clearly seen at night. Also, Congo is home to Mount Nyamuragira which is the most active volcano among the Virunga volcanoes and the entire world. Nyamuragira hiking tours are however discouraged due to the active nature of the volcano which is no safe for travelers.
