Climbing Mt Karisimbi is a fantastic experience but should only be tackled by experienced and fit hikers.

In Congo, Virunga National Park is the oldest national park in Africa and the second oldest in the world (after Yellowstone). It is named after the Virunga Mountain (volcanoes) range that lies in the south of the park. The park however is much larger and stretches all the way north to envelop Lake Edward as well as the Rwenzori Mountains.

The Mountain Gorillas are located in the Mikeno Sector, about a two and half hour drive from Goma. They can also be approached from Bunagana (border of Uganda). In this park Mountain gorillas are highly intelligent, good natured, and fascinating to observe.
