The Mikeno Mist Congo Tour Package (Gorillas & Nyiragongo Hiking)

The Mikeno Mist Congo Tour (Gorillas & Nyiragongo Hiking)

The Mikeno Mist package includes a three night stay in Virunga: two nights in Kibumba Tented Camp with a gorilla trek and one night’s stay on Nyiragongo volcano.

Day 1:

Arrive at Grande Barriere border crossing at 11:30 and ensure check-in with Virunga tourism office by 12:30pm which is conveniently located in the Grande Barriere border post building, opposite passport control. Guests will receive gorilla and volcano trek permits which must be presented at the start of each trek. Visitors will be transported to Gikeri Ranger Post to overnight in Kibumba Tented Camp.

Day 2:

After an early breakfast, trekkers will head down to meet their Ranger guides and have a briefing before the gorilla trek. Treks usually require 1-2.5 hours of hiking each way, depending on location of the gorilla group being trekked and the difficulty of the terrain. After spending the allotted hour with the gorillas, trekkers will return to camp, enjoy a late lunch and have the rest of the day at leisure, including time for nature walks and bird watching.

Day 3:

After breakfast, guests will be transported to the Kibati Ranger Post at 8:15am, the starting point for the Nyiragongo volcano trek. On arrival, guests will receive a briefing and will have the opportunity to hire porters. The climb up the volcano will take around four to six hours and trekkers will overnight on the summit.

Day 4:
