Safari's Last Frontier
Not to be confused with the Democratic Republic of Congo, this off-the-grid destination rewards the adventurous safari veteran a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore barely touched wildlands. Immerse yourself in the heart of the Congo Basin rainforest – the world’s largest after the Amazon – and traverse savannahs, marshy wetlands and rivers in one of the world’s remaining intact ecosystems. The Forest Massif of Odzala-Kokoua is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its lush terrain is home to western lowland gorillas, chimpanzees, forest elephant, rare antelope and over 400 species of birds. Safaris in Congo are an immersive experience rousing a deep appreciation for the area’s biodiversity, wildlife, culture and conservation in one of the planet’s most remote corners. Our bespoke itinerary offers a diverse journey incorporating traditional game drives, boat safaris, kayaking, walking and river wading.
