Bongos in Odzala Kokoua National Park

Trip Details:

Experience one of Africa’s least-explored wilderness areas and the world’s second largest rainforest, the 4-million sq km Congo Basin, on a journey that supports low-impact tourism and conservation of one of the planet’s essential and irreplaceable ecosystems. By foot, vehicle, boat, and kayak, explore Odzala-Kokoua National Park from three unique camps that together highlight the incredible biodiversity of the tropical rainforest ecosystem.

Trek with researchers to the critically endangered western lowland gorillas. Sit along the bais for the chance to observe even the shiest of species who arrive to quench their thirst and source precious minerals including forest elephant, forest buffalo, bongo, and bush pig. Experience the diverse landscapes from dense forest to savannah grasslands and wide, meandering rivers.

While Odzala is home to the pioneering research of the western lowland gorilla, this is far more than a gorilla trekking expedition. It is a journey well suited to the adventurous and curious traveler who appreciates a multitude of nature’s creatures and the physical demands of forest walking trails, kayaking, and river walks. Over 100 different mammal species are found here including western lowland gorillas, chimpanzees and red-tailed monkeys. More terrestrial species include forest buffalo, sitatunga and species of duiker some not much larger than rabbits. Herds of shy forest elephant move along ancient pathways and over 400 bird species also call Odzala home.
