Forest Elephants in Dzanga-Sangha Reserve

Central Africa is for many an unknown and inaccessible area. One of the largest continuous rainforests in the world is located here. The tropical rainforest extends from Cameroon, Gabon, Congo to Rwanda and Uganda. This is the habitat of the mountain gorillas (Rwanda), lowland gorillas (Congo Brazzaville) and forest elephants (CAR). A fascinating area and definitely worth exploring. In the south of the Central-African Republic lies Dzanga-Sangha Reserve , known for its extraordinary numbers of elephants and lowland gorillas. In some places in the reserve you can observe more than a hundred elephants at the same time. In addition, red buffalo, bongos and giant forest hog live here. Another reason to visit Dzanga is the opportunity to meet the traditional pygmy people. During walks through the forest you will be informed about the rich flora and the medicinal powers of the flora. A visit to Dzanga-Sangha can be easily combined with a stay in Ndoki NR in Congo Brazzaville or Lobéké Lake Park in Cameroon.
