""Mum, I Went to Congo to see the Gorillas"!!!" Parc National de Virunga by kentishgirl

Parc National de Virunga Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 193 photos

Was exactly what my email home read when I was safely back in Kisoro - Uganda.

To think that I was going to give up the chance of tracking the mountains gorillas now that I have done it is a sin! Seriously, this was one of the most amazing days of my life so far.....

Go to Congo, see the people, track the gorillas and let this country take your heart - it has mine.

    Ali - What a fantastic trip! I'm glad to see people are still going to see the mountain gorillas in DRC. I wonder if the park ranger's lodge is still there (I was there in 1993). I'd love to see more photos of your trip!

    Incredible.. Have seen many gorillas in zoos all over but it must be amazing to see in the wild. Thanks for sharing :) :) Did you see any DRC postcards for mailing when u were there? SL
