    The destinations are listed alphabetically with very brief summaries. For more details click on the destination name.

    Central African Republic
    'Western Lowland Gorilla' in Dzanga-Sangha NP which is contiguous with Nouabale Ndoki NP in the Republic of Congo (where habituated Gorillas can also be seen), both of which are also accessible from Cameroon.

    Gabon
    'Western Lowland Gorilla' at Langoue Bai in Ivindo NP.

    Rwanda
    Visitors are allowed to spend an hour with the 'Mountain Gorillas' in Volcanoes NP, arguably the ultimate wildlife experience.

    Uganda
    Visitors are allowed to spend an hour with the 'Mountain Gorillas' in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP, arguably the ultimate wildlife experience, and this coupled with an hour with Chimpanzees and all the other animals and birds in Uganda help make this A Top Ten Destination.
