Odzala-Kokoua National Park, in the Republic of Congo, is a diverse wonderland encompassing savannah, rainforest and bias. Get inspired with our all-inclusive Republic of Congo Congo safari ideas showcasing all this, then tell us your heart’s desire, and we’ll create a showstopping safari just for you.
Republic of Congo safari trips focus on the previously little-known Odzala-Kokoua National Park, where a handful of luxury safari lodges offer the best all-inclusive experiences.
The quintessential Congo safari experience is gorilla trekking – walking along shady forest trails in the company of expert guides as they interpret tracks and signs left by the park’s most charismatic residents.
The patchwork of lush habitats that make up the Odzala ecosystem supports many species that will be new to you, no matter how many times you’ve been on safari. Lowland gorilla share their remote forest fastness with such remarkable species as dwarf crocodile and bongo antelope.
Odzala’s savannah regions can be explored on a game drive, but to truly get a sense of this incredible place you need to spend time walking through the forest and bais (marshy clearings rich in both minerals and life).
Wet boots are almost a badge of honour in Odzala – you’ll have ample opportunities to dry them around the campfire later. But don’t take them off just yet – the forest comes alive all over again as darkness falls, with glowing eyes and strange calls a testament to the array of nocturnal life that can be spotted on a night walk.
Our Republic of Congo safari ideas offer a rawer, more visceral African experience – one that will touch your heart.
