After a period of relative calm and political negotiations, the fighting has again started in the southern sector of Virunga National Park. Because of this the park’s management has decided to keep the southern & central sector (gorilla’s, chimps & volcanoes) closed for visitors at least until the 15th of August. All trips planned during that period are hereby canceled, if you already paid for your trip, please send us your confirmation and your proof of payment and we will refund you as soon as possible.
The positive news is that we expect to be sending rangers back into the Gorilla sector this week in order to start monitoring their movements and health again. To follow progress of activities in the park, please follow our blog: www.gorilla.cd/blog
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you can appreciate that we make these decisions with the safety of our visitors in mind.
