What You Need To Know About the Gorillas?

The mountain Gorillas  have  darker & thicker coats, and are usually larger than the lowland gorillas, so as to help protect them in the cold altitudes. However, both  gorilla species feed on leaves, tree shoots and fruits.

Each gorilla family in both groups are  headed by a  dominant Male Silverback who is responsible for the safety of the other individual gorilla members within the family and keeping wild individuals in check.

All Silverback males sustain their groups, while the females often move to other groups, once they have matured.

Congo Gorilla safaris does not only offer Gorilla trekking safaris, but also protects several  species in its tropical rain forests like: mountain ranges, crater lakes, water bodies and numerous bird and animal species including the Okapi,Bonobos -pygmy chimpanzees, though more  is yet to be unveiled.
