Senkwekwe Gorilla Orphanage Centre

When you stay at Mikeno Lodge, you will have a huge opportunity of visiting the only mountain gorilla orphanage. Only guests at Mikeno Lodge can visit the orphan mountain gorillas at the Senkwekwe Centre – located close to the lodge. You will have a great time with these gorillas, interacting with them, learning their behaviors as you take as many photos as you can for remembrance.

Senkwekwe Center not only protects the orphaned mountain gorillas but also has some lowland gorillas that were rescued from Kahuzi – Biega National Park (Democratic Republic of Congo’s eastern lowland gorilla refuge) and Bukavu.

A visit to Senkwekwe gorilla orphanage Centre gives a chance to closely have an exceptional interaction with these mountain gorillas whose behaviors are quite different from those in the wild.

Please don’t do that mistake of leaving Mikeno Lodge (Virunga National Park) minus visiting the Senkwekwe Centre, I assure you; you will love everything you will experience there!!
