Dense, complex and remote, the 4-million km2 Congo Basin is perhaps the continent’s least explored wilderness. Congo Conservation Comapny has combined two pivotal areas in this magnificent sphere – the 13 000 km2 Odzala-Kokoua National Park in the north west of the Republic of the Congo, and the 7 500 km2 Sangha Trinational, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a collaborative protected area from the Republic of the Congo, Cameroon and Central African Republic. Within the Sangha Trinational is Dzanga-Sangha Special Reserve.

Both Odzala and Sangha are part of the tropical rainforest ecosystem with rich fauna and flora, including the critically endangered western lowland gorilla, forest elephant, forest buffalo, and bongo to name but a few. Accommodations between Odzala Discovery Camps and Sangha Lodge differ, but the ethos remains the same – to protect and conserve the land and its inhabitants, making it commercially viable through low-impact tourism.

Classic Factors:

  • Gorilla protection hotspot: Home to the pioneering research of the western lowland gorilla.
  • Leading conservation initiative: Preserving a vulnerable rainforest, the “lungs” of our planet.
  • Outstanding adventure: With minimal impact on the ecosystem: tracking gorilla on foot, forest walking trails, kayaking, river walks.
  • Discover rare species: Forest elephant, forest buffalo, bongo, sitatunga, various monkey species and rare birds in pure wilderness.
  • Dzanga Baï: Lose track of time from the platform, witnessing hundreds of animals as they visit this mineral-rich clearing.
  • Pangolin research: Be inspired by the research and conservation work done at Sangha Lodge to save pangolins.
  • Hunt with the Ba'Aka: Understand an ancient way of life as this tribe allows you into their daily routine.
  • Explore more: See trees taller than you have ever imagined in the Valley of the Giants, rare picathartes bird species, waterfall hikes.
