On this safari, you will be able to have a one on one with these enormous mortals and you can be certain this is the one and only unforgettable experience you will have in the country.

However, the National park is blessed with over 90 different species of animals, over 500 bird species, 11 primate species and a beautiful flora and fauna and only four remaining gorilla families that can be visited on any date of the year provided permits are still available.
