4 Days Congo Gorilla Tour

The 4 days Congo gorilla tour includes an exploration of the jungles of the Virunga volcanoes in search for the giant mountain gorillas. Despite the ages of civil conflict and human encroachment on their habitat, the mountain gorillas have still survived at the verge of extinction thanks to great conservation efforts from governments and conservation bodies. Expect to trek through the jungles, hike the volcanoes and glance at the magnificent silverback gorilla as he trolls the forest majestically exhibiting his authority.
With the security situation in Congo, the tour will be a scheduled one and is usually done over the weekend since there are specific departure times where you have to be escorted by government soldiers to and from the park.
