Trip Overview

Remote and ruggedly beautiful, Virunga National Park stands among the world’s most exotic destinations. The park is home to nearly 1,000 mountain gorillas, the largest population in the world. It is the ideal place to get close to mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Virunga hosts 218 mammal species, 706 bird species, 109 species of reptiles and over 2,000 species of plants. This adds up to a biodiversity greater than any other protected area in Africa.

The landscape of Virunga is stunningly beautiful with majestic peaks, live volcanoes and tropical forests. This is Africa’s oldest national park covering 3,000 square miles of pristine wilderness. Until a few years ago, Virunga was all but inaccessible to the outside world. But today the park has resurged with the help of an array of international supporters, the development of an internationally trained ranger force, and increased stabilization in the area. Privately guided by English speaking guides, this safari makes one of the world’s most exciting destinations safe and accessible to international travelers.
