Located in Odzala-Kokoua National Park, which forms part of the Congo Basin, Ngaga Camp is undoubtedly the best location in Africa to view western lowland gorillas. Ngaga Camp is the Ndzehi Forest Concession and is the sister camp of Lango Camp and Mboko Camp. The camp works hard to keep its environmental footprint to an absolute minimum.
The camp is set in dense forest and blends beautifully into the natural surroundings due to its locally sourced building materials. The 6 double chalets are found on stilts overlooking the Ndezhi Forest with a 360° wrap around walkway. A star deck and fire pit are found on a deck below the main living area, perfect for pre-dinner drinks while watching the sunset over the forest.
Ngaga Camp has become one of Africa’s most important gorilla tracking destinations offering an opportunity to engage with science and nature. A team of permanent researchers and trackers from nearby communities work with the gorilla families daily. Guests are led on expeditions into the rainforest in search of gorillas, exotic birds, and rare primates such as the putty-nosed monkey and the grey-cheeked mangabey. Gorilla trekking is the main focus at the camp. Other activities include exploring the tropical forest on various walking trails and ‘night walks’ searching for the elusive nocturnal primates in the area.
