This short adventure takes you trekking to see the mountain gorillas that live deep in the jungles of the Virunga volcanoes. This amazing experience lets you spend up to one hour with gorillas, after locating them with your ranger guide.

Our aim is to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species and to promote sustainable, socially responsible travel which benefits the wildlife and communities you choose to visit. For example, the money from your gorilla trekking permit goes straight back into the national park and preserving the habitat as well as anti-poaching efforts and education programmes.
