Mount Nyiragongo, Virunga @ Richard Roberts


By Helicopter

Close encounters with mountain gorillas are one of the most special wildlife experiences on earth! Our helicopter safaris take you into the heart of the Virungas - a World Heritage Site and Africa’s oldest park - a pristine habitat rich in biodiversity, and unique in that it has both lowland and montane forest, with diverse species of trees, ferns, butterflies and birds. The volcanoes of Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira lie within the chain of 8 - and both are active with magnificent lava lakes.

Congo Highlights

Other treasures of the Congo are the Kahuzi Biéga National Park where the critically endangered Grauer's gorilla is protected. Lake Kivu and the beautiful tented camp on the horse-shoe island of Tchegera is a perfect end to our heli-adventure.
