Welcome to DR Congo

Nature adventures

Covered by vast expanses of tropical rainforest, interspersed with fierce rivers and fuming volcanic activity, the Democratic Republic of Congo is the epitome of African adventure. Here you will find exotic animals that seem to come straight out of a prehistoric book, such as the shoebill or okapi, for which the country is so famous.

Virunga National Park

The Virunga National Park is internationally renowned for its exciting wildlife and habitat. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also the oldest and most biologically diverse protected area in Africa. Among others the park is home to chimpanzees, mountain gorillas and the impressive, active volcano Nyiragongo, which can be climbed on an exciting two-day trek.
