Planning for DRC Congo safaris and tours? Congo is one of the best but least visited safari destinations in Africa. It is referred to as the second lung of planet earth because it produces the second largest amount of oxygen to the world. Congo has a very rich biodiversity but unfortunately not all destinations are open for tourism. Only a few safari parks are open for tourism. Among these are: Virunga National Park and Kahuzi Biega National Park. The best activity to carry out in Congo is gorilla trekking. Congo has two gorilla species which include mountain gorillas and lowland gorillas. It is one of the only three tour destinations in the world with mountain gorillas. The other two are Rwanda and Uganda. Congo's mountain gorillas live in Virunga National Park, a world heritage site that shares the Virunga Conservation Area.

Why travel to Congo?
The best reasons to visit Congo are gorilla tracking and Mount Nyiragongo hiking. Thousands flock Goma each year to take on a dare to reach the summit of the most dangerous active volcano in the world. The experience is awesome just like the views from the top. For gorilla trackers, Congo has two species of gorillas – the lowland gorillas and mountain gorillas. These are found in Virunga National Park and Kahuzi Biega National Park respectively. These gorillas can be tracked at a fee of $400. This price is $1100 lower than the Rwandan price and $200 lower than the Ugandan fee.
When to go to Congo
The best time to visit Congo is from June to September. These months are the driest and provide the best experience for various safari activities. Visiting outside these months is still okay but not so recommended because of the high chances of rainfall.
