Go­ril­las and lava lakes

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Signature Concierge -

Of the world’s 900 re­main­ing moun­tain go­ril­las, nearly a quar­ter are found in Virunga Na­tional Park, a di­verse swathe of the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo. With the south­ern sec­tion of the park hav­ing re­cently re­opened and its res­i­dent go­ril­las cap­tured in the award-win­ning documentary ‘Virunga’, The Sa­fari Col­lec­tion has an­nounced the open­ing of Mikeno Lodge. Af­ter a rare go­rilla trek, spend­ing an hour with a band of go­ril­las, guests will stay overnight in the park at Mikeno Lodge, home to canopy-dwelling mon­keys and birds, and spa­cious cot­tage-style ac­com­mo­da­tion. A thrilling visit to the world’s largest lava lake is es­sen­tial, where guests camp at the vol­cano’s edge and de­scend by dawn. www.the­sa­fari­col­lec­tion.com
