Congo Luxury Safari

Known for its breadth of biodiversity and natural richness, which includes the largest area of primary rainforest in Africa, a Congo Luxury Safari may be off the trodden path somewhat, but this often results in a friendly welcome and some heart-warming interactions with the local people, who are genuinely unaccustomed to, and fascinated by, foreign visitors. In the Republic of Congo there is lots of potential for exploration for pioneering explorers looking for a unique African experience.

Why We Like The Republic Of Congo For Luxury Safari?

An intrepid destination for hardy travellers, the Congo Safari gives you the chance to experience some of the most beautiful spots in Africa, and see some incredible wildlife.

Amazing Activities

Walk through the dense jungles, swim in natural pools, take boat trips down the river and track the gorillas.

Exploring Incredible Landscapes

A journey to the Congo isn’t just about the wildlife, but the amazing areas which they call home. There are also some wonderfully, rich cultural experiences to be had; explore markets, venture through the cities, and much more.

Pristine Wildlife

Track lowland gorillas, enjoy walking safaris to see forest elephants and even night drives to see species such as leopard.

Congo Luxury Safari To Find The Glimpses Of Gorilla

A Congo Luxury Safari presents a rare opportunity – the privilege and thrill of observing Western lowland gorillas, one of our closest relatives in the wild and exploring a thriving rainforest ecosystem, both of which create a feeling of adventure and discovery.

Congo Luxury Gorilla Safaris Includes….

  1. Walk through pristine rain forest watching for mountain lowland gorillas at Odzala-Kokoua National Park.
  2. Stay at beautifully-sited intimate 6-room camps nestled into the surrounding forest.
  3. Explore bird life, primates, and buffalo on walks, game drives, and river-based safaris joined by expert guides.
  4. Learn about local conservation and research projects and gorilla behaviour when you visit Congo.

Activities To Find On Congo Luxury Safari

After Congo Gorilla Safari, there you can find more activities on top of the gorillas. Congo Luxury Safari includes very much a walking, canoeing and mokoro experience deep with an ecosystem supporting a large diversity of primates, large tusked forest elephants, forest buffalo, the beautiful red river hog and the exceptional Bongo antelope. Distant cries of truly wild and unhabituated chimp colonies can be heard in the distant canopy.

TOP DR CONGO SAFARI FAQS

Before entering Uganda, Rwanda, or DR Congo, you need to obtain a visa. In the case of Uganda, tourist visas can be bought in advance via the embassy or consulate in your country or can be purchased at the airport upon arrival. Passport photos are not required. A single entry tourist visa costs US $100 per person for a stay of up to 90 days. For Rwanda, a visa can be gotten in advance through the embassy or consulate in your country.

In Uganda and Rwanda, ATM cards and credit cards can be mostly used without any hassle. While Visa credit cards are by far the most convenient way to withdraw cash, MasterCards can be used at Barclay’s Bank, for example. Outside of Kampala and Kigali, ATM machines are scarce. Upcountry, ATMs can be found in larger towns. Your Instinct Safaris guide is further advised to temporarily help cover expenses in Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo in case you cannot withdraw cash at a given moment. We do not recommend trying to obtain cash in DR Congo at this time. Instead, we recommend bringing cash (either Uganda Shillings, Rwandan Francs, or US Dollars). Travelers cheques are not recommended in the countries we serve.

The topography of Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo covers a wide panel of terrains. Along with this array of landscapes comes a range of climates specific to these regions. All three countries are situated at a relatively high altitude compared to other east African countries. When going on safari with us, it can therefore be important to plan ahead and to know just when to encounter the best trekking and wildlife viewing conditions. While mountain gorilla tracking is recommended throughout the year and rain can come down on any day, our recommendations for the best travel times only apply to wildlife viewing and safari on the flatter plains in Uganda and Rwanda.

As mentioned before, Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo encompass a wide range of geographical features and a number of different climates. In any case, make sure to bring durable walking shoes or boots, sun glasses, and sun screen. Do not forget to pack insect repellent to fight off mosquitoes in the evenings, rain gear, and your camera. As far as clothing goes, go for comfortable boots, preferably two pairs. Shorts and long trousers and regular T-shirts or buttoned shirts are a good choice. Especially around Bwindi National Park and the Virunga volcanoes, mornings and evenings can be rather cold (down to 5 °C). Please make sure to bring appropriate clothing.
