Gorilla Trekking Go Back
 
The Democratic Republic of Congo is another home to Mountain Gorillas in Africa. The country has both Lowland and Mountain Gorillas. Gorilla Trekking safaris in Congo are becoming popular worldwide! The country is safe and open to all International visitors. The critically endangered mountain gorillas are found in Virunga National Park, accessed from Kisoro town in South western Uganda. Kisoro town (Near by town to the Boarder) is 2-3 hour drive from Kigali in Rwanda, and 6-8 hours from kampala (Uganda's Capital). You never know in advance how far you will have to hike to encounter these rare great apes, who forage up and down the vertiginous, forested slopes of dormant volcanoes searching for their favorite fruits, roots, and leaves according to season.

Gorilla trekking in the DRC is not for everybody. The post-conflict political situation remains fragile, and the roads are among the worst in Africa. But if you decide to visit Virunga National Park, where tourism is beginning to recover after nearly two decades of conflict, you will have an important advantage over those on mountain gorilla treks in neighboring Rwanda and Uganda: Unlike those countries, where parties of eight trekkers is the norm, the maximum group size for a VNP gorilla family of less than ten members, such as Munyaga, is just four human visitors (plus trackers and rangers). That means you will have fewer human competitors for camera angles, and more chance to draw the gorillas' attention.

Travelers with physical challenges will be best accommodated in Rwanda, where the Parc National des Volcans offers round-trip stretcher service for elderly or infirm guests who wish to observe mountain gorillas but are not up to strenuous hiking.
