Where to go

The Virunga National Park was established in 1925 as Africa’s first national park and the oldest park in all of Africa’s history. It was established by King Albert I in 1925, and was installed as a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site since 1979. It is currently managed by the Congolese National Park Authorities, the Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature, and its partner, the Virunga Foundation. Within the park, travellers may explore the exceptional biodiversity, containing more bird, mammal, and reptile species than any protected area on the African continent.
Mount Hoyo - To the northwest of the Virunga National Park, a little known destination called Mount Hoyo is another reserve worth exploring. It is home to a population of Bambuti Pygmy people, and is a magnificent place filled with hidden waterfalls and caves.
