~ This June, 2017 article in the Wall Street Journal discusses how ecotourism in the Democratic Republic of Congo is centered around field observation of eastern lowland gorillas.

 

The gorillas are seen in Congo's Kahuzi-Biega National Park.

A colleague of mine with a subscription to the journal printed the article for me that goes with the video.  I was unable to see it without the subscription.  I'm attaching it here with full acknowledgement that it's from Monday's WSJ.  Mods feel free to delete if this crosses a line.  The article is fascinating though.

That's very thoughtful of you to do that.

 

Thanks so much.

 

I read the full article with great interest, but never saw the video, as “foreign” videos aren't permitted here.

What's interesting Tom is that I can see the video through the link you provided, but can't without your link (if I just try to navigate to it on the WSJ site).  So thank YOU for sharing that!!

@Zim Girl After coming back fro there, please tell me all the costs and logistics! I would like to go to Kahuzi Biega but I am not sure about how to visit without taking any international TO.

Thanks @Tom Kellie  We have been booked for this trip for over a year and are really looking forward to it now that is getting a bit closer.  We are doing 2 treks at Kahuzi-Biega then 3 treks to see the mountain gorillas in Virunga NP also in DRC.

Hi @jeremie  We are using a specialist TO who has organised everything to go to DRC.  I gave you the total costs in a PM last October.  I do not have a breakdown I am afraid, other than that the permits cost $400 each.  Once we have come back I should be able to give you the name of the ground operator that was used.
