Discover the Congo & Gorilla Trekking
This ‘off the beaten track’ 10-day itinerary offers an immersive rainforest experience that is sure to satisfy your sense of adventure. You will start your trip in Brazzaville, the capital city of the Republic of Congo. The city lies on the edge of the Congo riverbanks and has a pleasantly laid-back vibe contrasting with its bustling neighbour, Kinshasahich.
Leaving the city behind, you will travel to the north-western Congo-Brazzaville and find Odzala Kokoua National Park, one of Africa’s oldest national parks covered in rainforest, pockets of savannah, rivers and baies. The park is known as the home to the majestic western lowland gorilla. With over 450 different bird species and diverse wildlife such as forest elephants, hyaenas and bongos, this is a nature lover dream holiday. Activities are a mix of on-foot excursions, boat trips and game drives, allowing for a truly immersive wilderness experience.
