Ngaga Camp is found in the heart of the rainforest in Odzala-Kokoua National Park, Republic of the Congo. This remote and beautiful wilderness is not widely regarded as a mainstream tourist destination. Visitors are therefore assured of an out-of-the-ordinary safari that few can say they’ve experienced. The luxurious traditionally-designed chalets are tucked into the leafy surrounds and elevated to maximise views. They are constructed using natural materials such as thatch that create a charmingly rustic feel, but have all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. The en-suite bathrooms have showers and toilets, while the unusual washbasins are set into the back of the bed headboard! Relax on your private veranda, maybe catching a glimpse of a monkey swinging through the trees. Guests can unwind on the camp’s elevated campfire deck and swap stories after an exciting day. The main activity at Ngaga is the gorilla trekking- this is one of the few places in the world where you can witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Professional, experienced guides lead you through the rainforest in search of the gorillas, and when you find them, standing metres away from these awe-inspiring animals will take your breath away. Other activities include night and day forest walks where you can marvel at the fascinating trees, plants and birds of this unique ecosystem.
