WHOOPING CHIMPANZEES AND FOREST ELEPHANTS

The Republic of Congo is one of the most beautiful rainforest areas that you will find in Africa. It is ancient, it is raw, it is mesmerizing, and it will transport you into a whole other world.

Not to be confused with the much larger Congo country to the south and east, The DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly Zaire), the Republic of Congo, also referred to as Congo-Brazzaville (after its capital city), is divided from the much larger DRC, and its neighboring capital of Kinshasa, by the mighty Congo River and sits up on the north west borders of the DRC.

In turn it is bordered in the north by the Central African Republic, to the north west by Cameroon, to the west by Gabon (south of which the country has egress to the coast), and to the South by Angola.

Venturing into the lush and life-filled forests, and specifically into the Parc National d’Odzala, you can go tracking to watch families of Western Lowland Gorilla, which represent half the world’s population,  search for whooping and swinging troops of Chimpanzee, and watch the unique Forest Elephants congregate at the baïs. There is also a wealth of other primates, rare antelope (like the Bongo), wild hogs and a plethora of birds. The untouched beauty of the Republic of Congo has led it to become one of the most exceptional developing ecotourism destinations in Africa.

Republic of Congo boasts luxurious safari accommodation that is intimate and remote. A true wilderness destination where you can reconnect with nature in the most comfortable, personal and magical setting you can imagine. The Safari experience is focused on the adventurous spirit and the explorer who wants to truly immerse themselves in iconic wild Africa,

Heed the pull and call of the Congo and its wildness. Your adventure awaits.
