Virunga Mountains – Nkuringo Safaris

Virunga Mountains

The Virunga Mountains are a range of volcanic mountains in East Africa, spanning  Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The mountains are home to various wildlife, including endangered mountain gorillas and other primates, antelopes, and birds.

The Virunga Mountains are a popular destination for gorilla trekking, providing a unique opportunity for visitors to observe these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. The trekking experience offers a chance to witness the gorillas’ behavior and social structure up close, providing invaluable insights into their lives and conservation efforts.

In addition to gorilla trekking, the volcanoes offer a range of other adventure activities, such as hiking, mountain climbing, and cultural tours. The mountains also have several national parks and reserves, including the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, and the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The mountains are also rich in cultural heritage, with several ethnic groups living in the region, including the Batwa pygmies. Visitors can learn about local cultures and traditions by visiting local communities and attending cultural events.
