Congolese Gorillas of Uganda

Early this week, authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo abruptly decided to close two border posts normally used by thousands, mainly cross-border traders operating in the towns of Goma (Eastern DRC) and Gisenyi sector in Rubavu District on the Rwandan side.

The outbreak of hostilities between M23 and the Congolese army in May,2012 forced the Virunga National Park Authorities,to shut down its tourism activity.

Government authorities were forced to withdraw from parts of the park earlier this year because of the advance by M23 rebels, and now tourists wanting to see the rare mountain gorillas.

Tourists wanting to see the Mountain gorillas usually fly into the Ugandan capital Kampala before driving to the Congolese border and crossing into Bunagana.
