4 Days Congo Gorilla Safari from Kenya (Wildlife & Gorillas)
Enjoy a long weekend with this 4 Days Congo gorilla safari from Kenya. Jambo Jet is, fortunately, offering flights from Nairobi to the Goma capital of Congo, this, therefore, means a direct flight to Congo for a cheaper gorilla trekking experience than the neighboring countries. The mountain gorilla permit in Congo is the cheapest in Africa and this weekend package is the best way to trek these giants within their natural habitat and relax in Congo.
The Mikeno Mist Package includes a three-night stay in Virunga: two nights in Kibumba Tented Camp with a gorilla trek and a one-night stay on Tchegera Island. This package departs from Goma Airport Fridays at 14:00.
Note: Departure and return days are fixed for this itinerary, tour only departs on Fridays
4 Days Congo Gorilla Safari from Kenya Itinerary Details
Flying in on Jambojet, land in Goma at 1240; where you’ll be assisted through the airport by a team and shown to your car, which will take you to Tchegera Island Retreat on Lake Kivu, giving you the chance to unwind after a week at work and prepare for the weekend’s adventure. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy the tranquility of Lake Kivu and its myriad of bird species. Activities on the island include kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling.
You’ll be taken to the Virunga National Park office in Goma to collect your permits for the upcoming gorilla trek. You’ll then head into the Park to Kibumba Tented Camp on the edge of the Gorilla Sector, where you can settle into your accommodation and enjoy an evening briefing on the gorillas of Virunga.
After an early breakfast at Kibumba Tented Camp, trekkers will head down the hill to meet their Ranger guides and have a briefing before the gorilla trek. Treks usually require 1-2.5 hours of hiking each way, depending on the location of the gorilla group being trekked and the difficulty of the terrain. After spending the allotted hour with the gorilla family group, you will make your way back to camp, enjoy a late lunch and have the rest of the day at leisure, including time for nature walks and bird watching.
After breakfast, you’ll be transported back to Goma Airport on time to catch the return flight to Nairobi.
