Go ape for new Congo adventure
We’re very excited to announce the launch of a new trip for 2012 into the heart of Africa with one of our preferred partners, Wilderness Safaris.
The tropical forests of the Congo Basin comprise the world’s largest rainforests after those of the Amazon Basin, the last of their kind on the planet and home to the majority of the world population of western lowland gorillas.
It’s here in this ultra remote area that Wilderness Safaris is building two new six-tented eco camps in and near the Odzala-Kokoua National Park. Lango and Ngaga camps are due to open in May 2012. Following a design philosophy of green, sustainable development and local community involvement, each camp will consist of six rooms, taking inspiration from the designs of the local Pygmy.
From the camps guests will be able to track western lowland gorillas, one of humankind’s closest relatives, as well as spot forest elephant, forest buffalo, bongo, sitatunga, red river hog, slender snouted crocodiles and other primate species.
Having pioneered trips to the Congo for some time we’re thrilled to be part of this exciting new project. Watch this space for more.
