Trip Info

Overview

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 where you can trek Eastern Lowland gorillas. After the lifetime experience, visit the magnificent Tshibati waterfalls and Lwiro Sanctuary is one of the unique sanctuaries for its rich biodiversity. It has more animals and different species than other sanctuaries in Africa
