CONGO GORILLAS: HIGHLIGHTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO

Gorilla trekking
Your days will be spent trekking to the points where our expert guides know the gorillas will be found. While the gorillas are of course the high point, you can also look forward to incredible jungle views, dense flora, and other unique wildlife.

Gorilla encounters
Most days, the aim is to spend at least an hour with a group. This gives you ample opportunity to take plenty of photographs but also just to relax in their presence and enjoy their almost-human antics. Our incredible guides will share lots of detail and are also on hand to answer any questions.

Forest walks
A walk with a forest focus allows for bird watching and discovery of the incredibly rich forest life. Led by a knowledgeable guide and completed with river sundowners.

Bai exploration
By kayak or on foot…the Bai is a unique forest-swamp biome that is home to remarkable plant species that in turn provide for a host of creatures great and small. This is an essential part of the Congo experience.

Relaxation
We will of course allow plenty of time for unwinding and soaking up the atmosphere of this very special place.
