Lango Camp is the perfect place to explore the bai’s further or just relax and listen to the sights and sounds around you. After another morning walking and looking for red river hogs, bush buck and bongos (sadly we did not find the bongos on this trip…) and enjoying being in the magnificent area we have a chance to relax on Lango’s beautiful deck area, go through the photos of our adventures and just look over the bai into the jungle beyond.
Our last day, and we set out on the kayaks again to go further down the river, exploring the narrow waterways and just listening. Our quiet presence is rewarded by a sighting of forest elephants further down the river, their tails disappearing into the undergrowth. The boat is meeting us so we settle onto a sandy river bank and discover a natural vine swing! Nothing like a nice swing over the Lekoli river! The trees are huge here and covered with moss, a tree huggers paradise…
The boat comes round the river corner and we set off to explore further; palm-nut vultures are everywhere here and the bird life is prolific! Returning back to Mboko for a late lunch, which is set up on their deck looking over the river, we have time for a last swim in the river and relaxed BBQ style meal.
Sadly, the next morning it is time bid farewell to our Congo adventure and fly back to Brazzaville for our onward international flight.
