The Republic of Congo is home to around 125,000 western lowland gorillas. They inhabit its swampy rainforests, alongside chimpanzees, forest elephants and hundreds of species of birds. A tapestry of pristine rainforests, savannahs, rivers and bais, this true wilderness reopens for tourism from September 2021 with easy access and PCR tests for your return journey organised in camp.
