The Republic of Congo is a Central African gem whose doors are just beginning to open to eco-tourism. Covered in vast and pristine rainforest, the Congo is home not only to the vast majority of the western lowland gorilla but also to the widest range of animal and plant life species found anywhere in Africa!
A staggering 11 000 plant species have been identified to date and over 1 100 of these are only found in this unique eco-system – 69 of which are endangered. The rainforest offers the opportunity to view rare game species not found in any other typical safari area – chimpanzees, pygmy hippos, a large variety of unusual primate species such as the Grey-cheeked Mangabay and Putty-nosed Monkeys, forest buffalo and the very rare Bongo to name a few.
After arriving off your chartered flight from Brazzaville, you will meet your guide and take a scenic drive through savannah, forested areas and the colourful Mbomo village en route to Ngaga camp where you will be staying for the next 3 nights.
Early mornings are started with a light breakfast and an extensive briefing about the gorilla’s possible location, what to expect and how the tracking will commence for the morning.
After a scrumptious breakfast you bid a sad farewell to the staff at Ngaga and take a leisurely drive through savannah and forest to Lango Camp about 3 hours away.
Awaken to the heavenly birdsong and forest sounds before a light breakfast and embarking on your daily adventures.
You rise early to a light breakfast before setting out for the airstrip and your flight returning to Brazzaville and your onward arrangements.
