DR Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also popularly recognised as DR Congo or DRC, Congo-Kinshasa or Congo is a Central African country.  The biggest in Africa, Congo is a home to Mountain Gorillas, Eastern Lowland Gorillas and Western Lowland Gorillas plus several animals, birds and plant species across the country.

Everyday, Congo Gorilla Trekking tours are increasingly demanded by tourists from all over the world. The gravely endangered mountain gorillas have Virunga National Park as their natural habitat and this park is accessible from Uganda via Kisoro town in South western side. Kahuzi Biega National Park is a home to the lowland gorillas. The park therefore facilitates Lowland Gorilla Trekking in Congo.  Kahuzi-Biega is among the biggest national parks in the vast Congo characterised by both lowland and mountainous terrain.

In the eastern side of the country is also where we find Mount Nyiragongo Volcano, an active stratovolcano at a height of 3,470 metres (11,380 feet) in the  Virunga Mountains inside the Virunga National Park.  Mountain Gorilla Safaris, Nyiragongo Hiking and the Lowland gorilla tracking among others are what define our tour packages for Congo.
