    Description:

    The Democratic Republic of Congo is the second biggest country in Africa, situated along the Equator and having much of its territory covered by the original rain tropical forests of central Africa. Due to many years of political instability, tourism in Congo had lost ground but now increasing, especially in the Eastern regions bordering Rwanda and Uganda, where are located the immense forests of Virunga National Park and Kahuzi - Biega National Park. The major activity for the Tourists visiting Congo is the Tracking of the Endangered Mountain Gorillas found in The Virunga National park and the Eastern Lowland Gorillas in the Kahuzi-Bienge National park.

    Kahuzi – Biega National Park


    The Eastern Lowland Gorilla, a close relation of the mountain gorilla, is found in Kahunzi - Bienga National Park in DRC. This was the first park where the Gorillas were habituated in 1972. Now as security is becoming better in this part of DRC, Majestic safaris Ltd offers safaris tracking these stocky giants with elongated heads in the lush vegetation of this forgotten forest.

    The park is named after two mountains, Mt. Kahuzi (3.308 m.) and Mt. Biega (2.790 m.). With its 6.000 sq km in size, located in the South Kivu region of Congo, it has been designated World Heritage Site.
