Village Visits

Meet the community. Mbomo and Ombo villages, both located near Ngaga Lodge, provide an opportunity to meet some of the people who have lived in the Congo Basin for generations. Learn about the challenges and rewards of life in the forest and share your own experience in the outside world.

Village visits are subject to approval by the local communities and must be arranged in advance; please let us know before you arrive if you would like to meet some local residents, and we will make the request on your behalf. Please note that photography is generally not allowed. Modest gifts such as school supplies, sports equipment, and clothing are always welcome.
