Also known as Congo-Brazzaville, the Republic of the Congo is a central African nation, formerly a French colony, situated on the equator, with a short 100-kilometer Atlantic Ocean coastline. The country has several reserves, mainly protecting the lowland forests that host critically endangered western lowland gorillas, forest elephants, chimpanzees and bird species.
The Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park in the north runs contiguous to the Dzangha – Sangha National Park in neighbouring CAR, consisting of pristine rainforest with Bais, majestic trees and large mammals.
The Odzala National Park is another spectacular forest destination where you can view elephants, forest buffalo, gorillas and other wildlife, while offering supremely comfortable accommodation in a paradise larger than the Bahamas. The forest hosts over 100 different mammal species and more than 400 species of birds.Back
