CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
Central African Republic, also referred to as CAR, is a remote and unique jungle destination. Although challenging to reach, once you are there a whole new world of unforgettable wildlife and nature experiences will open up before you. The mineral rich Dzanga Bai is a refuge for forest elephants who gather in herds up to 4,000 in number, a truly humbling ritual to witness. Keep your eyes open for some of the other normally shy forest creatures like bongo, giant forest hog, red river hog, sitatunga and forest buffaloes who will also be drawn to this Bai. Wildlife viewing at night offers you the change to find the elusive pangolin. Trekking Western Lowland gorillas is another highlight, along with walking amongst some of Africa’s tallest trees in the Valley of the Giants. You can also follow a group of the Ba’aka tribe on their daily hunter-gatherer lifestyle while being taught about the medicinal uses of plants, for an intense and authentic cultural exchange.
