Congo Adventure

Among the last of their kind on the planet, the tropical forests the Congo Basin are the world's largest after those of the Amazon. These protected ecosystems are home to Western Lowland gorillas, Forest elephants and buffaloes, bongo and Sitatunga antelopes, Giant Forest and Red River hogs, leopards, African Grey parrots and many different monkey species.
We travel on the legendary Congo River to Nouabale-Ndoki National Park where we share our accommodation with scientists who research this ecosystem, a unique chance to learn more about this precious environment and the species that live in it.
We have the privilege to meet the Pigmies that still live in harmony with the forest and will escort us deep into the arboreal forest to track the gorillas. Relying on hunting and gathering what the primeval forest has to offer, these extraordinary people are key for its conservation.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join the ultimate wilderness adventure, a life changing experience deep in the heart of darkness!

Tour Highlights

  • The Congo Basin - An incredible expedition to explore some of the most remote and pristine national parks on Earth and their diverse ecosystems
  • Gorilla treks - trek the endangered lowland gorillas in their natural habitat
  • The Ba'Aka - Head into the forest with the Ba'Aka Pygmies
  • Wildlife viewing - excellent opportunities for watching wildlife in forest clearings, known as "Bais"
