We at Kenlink Tours and Travel we really feeling so sorry to people from this area, and also the wildlife as conservationists, its so ad as so we have nothing to so, because its our nature and no one has got control over the nature. Democratic republic of congo is one of the safari destinations as its a home for the ultimate mountain gorillas, and many other animals that attracts many tourists from different part of the world, as much of its national parks are forestry. The news of the Nyiragongo eruption has not been good for the ears of the conservationists, there is much panic due to thinking that a lot of animals could have lost their lives, the plants and diversity could not be safe.
