3 days Eastern lowland gorilla tour to Congo takes you to the Kahuzi Biega National Park for an amazing tour to see the endangered Grauer’s gorilla.  Kahuzi-Biega National park is one of best places to go for  a safari in Congo. It is one of the few national parks in Africa that remain relatively undiscovered with pristine wilderness and offering a feeling of being in true African wilderness – unspoiled and uncrowded. A safari in Kahuzi-Biega National Park is special and will reward visitors who are courageous to visit with amazing landscape and the Africa of our dreams.

Kahuzi Biega is one of the two natural habitats to Eastern lowland gorillas. The other population is found in Maiko National Park which is also in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are about 4,800 Eastern lowland gorillas remaining in the wild. Eastern lowland gorillas are the largest of the gorilla sub-species and the closest in appearance to mountain gorillas. Tracking eastern lowland gorillas generally takes a shorter time – lasting between 1 to 4 hours. There are 4 habituated gorilla groups within Kahuzi Biega National Park with one very close to the park offices itself. Two of the groups tend to move deeper into the forest or highlands especially during the dry season to look for food.
