Diverse wildlife, gorgeous landscapes and a spectacular site. We loved the gorilla interaction during our trip to Virunga National Park, they are apparently World's critically endangered mountain. if you enjoy being close to nature and exploring the natural habitat of the wildlife, this stunning park in Africa is a must-visit.

Virunga National Park

The Virunga National Park , formerly named Albert National Park, is a 7,800-square-kilometre National Park that stretches from the Virunga Mountains in the south, to the Rwenzori Mountains in the north, in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, bordering Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Rwenzori Mountains National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.

The park was established in 1925 as Africa's first national park and is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site since 1979. In recent years, poaching and the Congo Civil War have seriously damaged its wildlife population. The park is managed by the Congolese National Park Authorities, the Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature and its partner the Virunga Foundation, formerly known as the Africa Conservation Fund . The current park director since 2008 is the Belgian Prince Emmanuel de Merode.
