Our major safari highlight is the gorilla trekking experience in Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo. We organize trips to Bwindi & Mgahinga national parks in Uganda; Volcanoes in Rwanda and Virunga in DR Congo. We also offer chimpanzee tours and game drives in different destinations in East Africa.
We customize safari packages for individual and small private groups. The itineraries featured on this website simply sample packages. It is the reason why they are not priced as they keep changing depending on individual interests. Our state-of-art fleet of safari vehicles is kept in a very sound mechanical condition and built to offer comfort to a traveler on the bumpy marram roads to the African national parks. Our safari guides are drawn from a background of botany and zoology. We are proud to say, we have some of the best birding, photography, and general wildlife guides for both English and French-speaking guests.

Congo Gorilla Tours
Apparently, Congo is closed for tourism! This means that no anyongoing Congo gorilla safaris to Virunga National park home to over 200 mountain gorillas. The closure of the park is due to civil conflicts and rebel threats which put the life of travelers at a high risk. Safaris to hike Nyiragongo Volcano are also on halt till security is restored in the park. However, you can visit Congo to trek the endangered eastern lowland gorilla in Kahuzi Biega National park
