Another Congo


Kamba operates in the small, welcoming, and peaceful Republic of the Congo, which lies hundreds of miles west of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (a separate country that you may recognize from news headlines). Straddling the Equator in Central Africa and bordered by Gabon and Cameroon, the ROC is more than 60% forest. Brazzaville, the charming capital, is a walkable city of colorful markets, French Colonial architecture, and picturesque restaurants along the banks of the Congo River.

To visit the Republic of the Congo is to immerse yourself in its fertile tapestry of jungle, swamp, savanna, rivers, and the mineral-rich clearings called baïs. You will witness the stunning biodiversity of the world’s second largest rainforest: Gorillas and monkeys swinging high in the trees. Elephants and buffalos grazing in the marshes. A kaleidoscope of birds and butterflies. To experience the Congo is to deepen your understanding of the natural world and how it is all connected.

Odzala-Kokoua National Park

One of Africa's oldest parks, protected since 1935, the 13,500 sq.km. (5,230 sq.m.) Odzala is home to a captivating variety of flora and fauna. The lush landscape includes old-growth rainforest and harbors more than 4,400 plant species and 100-plus mammal species. The most thrilling sightings include Western Lowland Gorilla, Chimpanzee, Forest Elephant, Forest Buffalo, Spotted Hyena, and Bongo. Because Kamba runs the only private lodges in Odzala, you'll be among the only visitors in an area more than twice the size of Florida's Everglades National Park.
If you are looking for a really "out there" experience in Africa, this is the real deal… a thrilling, exotic and educational adventure.
