Brief

Encounter a gorilla face to face and see solitary males, silverback adults, and whole groups of infant gorillas for a fraction of the cost you’d pay anywhere else. Enjoy a Brazzaville City and Cultural Introduction Tour beforehand.

Tour Detail

The Congo hosts more wild lowland and mountain gorillas than its neighbors Rwanda and Uganda, yet tourists wait for months to pay escalating prices to see them there. Encounter a gorilla face-to-face and see solitary males, silverback adults, and whole groups of infant baby gorillas in the forest! You'll also have more chances via a riverboat safari to see more troops in the wild for a fraction of what you’d pay anywhere else!

See gorillas in Africa, a life-changing encounter with our earthly cousins that nobody ever forgets or walks away from the same. Have the chance to see gorillas in the wild on a finger of the Congo River ecosystem, visit an orphanage and gorilla protection project on a protected territory of the jungle where gorillas can roam freely. 

This tour also visits all of the main attractions and cultural and historical landmarks of Brazzaville and great views of the twin cities of Kinshasa-Brazzaville, and (on request) artist collectives, sapeur groups, and art schools, and en route to Lefini view a tank graveyard where you can see towers of rusting war machines handed down from the Great African War.

NOTE: Visitors to the park directly fund and help protect the gorillas and their natural habitat. Tourism greatly helps upkeep and maintain the park facilities and conditions for the gorillas, and incentivize the local community to take care of them; you are helping an endangered species.

Itinerary

Welcome to Brazzaville, our representative will greet you at the airport, and courteously assist you to your hotel.
