Senkwenkwe Gorilla Orphanage Tour

Duration: 1 Day(s) - 0 Night(s)
Tour Category: Gorillas

Package Itinerary

The Senkwenkwe Gorilla orphanage is the world’s only gorilla orphanage and is currently home to four gorillas, ages 5 – 14. Two of the gorillas, both 9 years old, were orphaned during the gorilla massacre of 2007, the only surviving members of their family. At two months old and four months old, they were too young to survive independently so Virunga National Park took them in to help raise and protect them during a particularly harsh poaching period in Congolese history. They continue to live at Senkwekwe today.
