People have been fascinated by gorillas ever since they’ve been known to humans. Now you can track them on safari in the VirungaMountains straddling Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Trekking from a Matoke Tours guest lodge in Uganda, you overlook the spectacular LakeMutanda and the volcanoes of the VirungaMountains. The safari includes two travel days through the BwindiImpenetrableForest until you find the mountain gorillas. From the DRC you can approach from Mikeno Lodge, a half hour drive from Goma which offers beautiful views of the Rift Valley and Nyiragongo and Mikeno volcanoes. Facilities in both the DRC and Uganda have amenities of the highest quality. These treks also provide opportunities to view an abundance of bird life, as well as resident blue monkeys, colobus monkeys, baboons and Chimpanzees.
