The World List of Natural Sites of Tourist Attraction

As the country’s oldest national park, it’s also the most biologically diverse. Roughly 25% of endangered mountain gorillas call the park home, and Virunga is the only park to have three of the four great apes in one place. The Okapi, an endangered species that looks like a cross between a giraffe and a zebra, also make the park their home.  You can spot hippos, lions, elephants, and a number of rare and exotic birds. The park has three distinct areas, all worth a visit:  The Rwenzori Mountains, Lake Edward area, and the Mikeno volcano area.
