In this adventure, Ubuntu Voyages brings you to Kahuzi-Biega National park, a safari destination in Africa which escapes to the choice of tourists just because the world does not know much about this world heritage site. Kahuzi-Biega National Park is a refuge of the highly endangered Eastern Lowland (the Grauer’s gorillas). The only destination in Democratic Republic of Congo that has Eastern Lowland gorillas. These are not to be confused with the Mountain Gorillas sought to by tourists in the Virunga National Park, Rwanda and Uganda. Watching these marvelous creatures in their habitat is a life changing experience offered by Kahuzi-Biega National Park.

Ubuntu Voyages offers 3 days Eastern lowland gorilla safari starting from Kigali/Rwanda. Kahuzi-Biega National Park in the DRC is home to species of lowland Gorillas which are different from the mountainous ones found in Virunga National Park. Both lowland and mountain gorillas are endangered. Let’s escape together and enjoy a life changing experience with Lowland gorillas in the Kahuzi Biega National Park.

You’ll receive a short briefing about the lowland gorilla tracking. Following the briefing, you begin your journey along narrow jungle paths to meet the gorillas. The length of this hike depends on the location of the gorillas. Some days they can be 20-40 minute walk from the road into the Forest, other days it can take over an hour of walking to reach the Lowland gorillas as they are always on the move for the search of food.
