Steppes Travel gorilla trekking Holidays
Republic of Congo and DRC
Unlike Uganda or Rwanda, gorillas in Republic of Congo are found in lowland tropical forest, in Odzala National Park. Therefore, whilst it is flat, it is very humid with difficult paths and long treks. However, in contrast to this, access to Odzala is by charter flight and the camps are exceptionally comfortable.
In DRC, there are two options for seeing gorillas. Head to Africa’s oldest national park, Virunga and visit one of four habituated mountain gorilla groups on the heavily forested slopes of the extinct Mikeno Volcano. Alternatively, visit Kahuzi-Biega where the lush rolling hills and thick jungle are the last remaining habitat for Grauer’s gorillas.
