The Democratic Republic of Congo isn’t an obvious tourist destination, and has often been given a bad press by the international media. However, this country deserves a much better reputation. It is an astoundingly beautiful country, and its people are some of the friendliest and most welcoming in Africa! Most visitors who come to Congo are overwhelmingly surprised by how special - and safe - it is. The abundance of natural wonders - especially in Virunga National Park - are awe-inspiring. If you are looking to experience a safari that is unlike any other, then the Congo is the place to visit.

We have a very unique ‘Ice, Apes & Lava Lakes’ Helicopter Safari to Congo taking place in March 2020. Download the brochure with full details here.

Trekking to see the gorillas in Virunga National Park, DRC, was definitely a trip of a lifetime. We had an amazing trip with Mikey to not only to visit the mountain gorillas but also to hike to the top of the Ngorongoro Volcano, one the world’s most volatile volcanoes. Our trip to the Congo was definitely a ‘one of a kind’ experience, expertly guided by Mikey and his team. When Mikey first suggested a trip to the Congo for a unique cultural and wildlife vacation we were hesitant however it was one of the best decisions we have ever made.
