Book your trip to Virunga National Park in Congo now and travel between 15 Oct and 15 Dec 2016 and get 50% off your gorilla permits! 

You will save 200 $ per permit, making the permit 74% (540 $) cheaper than visiting the gorillas in Rwanda, now that’s a great deal.

You can combine the gorilla trek with a visit to the Lava Lake of the Nyiragongo Volcano, visit the Virunga Headquarters in Rumangabo, meet the Orphan Gorillas at the Senkwekwe center, or go big and we can organize a trip combining Virunga with Tanzania with  stopover on Rubondo Island in Lake Victoria and be part of the chimpanzee habituation efforts there.

At INSPIRED JOURNEYS we believe in Africa. Not just the parts everyone knows, but especially what we like to call UNCONVENTIONAL AFRICA. The blurry spots on the tourism maps that were either never accessible or forgotten after troubled times. Like Virunga National Park in the Congo, these are the places that still offer true authentic EXPERIENCES, and where as a traveler you can make a REAL IMPACT.

We ASPIRE TO INSPIRE our guests to experience something AUTHENTIC and EXCITING and whenever possible in a way that contributes to the COMMUNITIES and CONSERVATION of the areas they visit, by using service providers, hotels and lodges that reinvest their earnings in conservation and community support. Read more about this on our Be Inspired page.

We organize customized and personalized travel experiences from arrival in Africa to departure, including all transport, lodging and activities. We feel that adventure does not have to mean discomfort, we have the experience and know how to visit these areas in a comfortable way. Of course some activities are intrinsically tougher and rougher, making a return to the comfort of your lodge afterwards even better!

Have a browse around our website and drop us a line if you have any questions, we are looking forward to hearing from you, and to find out WHERE YOUR INSPIRATION WILL TAKE YOU!
