intro

intro

Virunga is Africa's oldest national park and is also the continent's most biologically diverse protected area.
The Virunga National Park, formerly named Albert National Park, is a 7,800-square-kilometre (3,000 sq mi) National Park that stretches from the Virunga Mountains in the south, to the Rwenzori Mountains in the north, in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, bordering Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Rwenzori Mountains National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.

Virunga is home to about a quarter of the world's critically endangered mountain gorillas. The park's two other Great Ape species, eastern lowland Grauer's gorillas and chimpanzees, make Virunga the only park in the world to host three taxa of Great Apes.

Another prominent inhabitant of the park is the Okapi, an endangered species that resembles a zebra but is more closely related to the giraffe. Large colonies of hippopotami, forest and savanna elephants, lions, and numerous rare bird species can also be found in the park.
