Congo Conservation Company is proud to pioneer eco-tourism in the Republic of Congo (Congo-Brazzavile) and works towards creating a sustainable future for the park and for the surrounding villages. The cornerstone of CCC is to create space and freedom to discover the pristine natural environments of the Congo Basin in safety.
Odzala Discovery Camps consists of Nagaga, Lango and Mboko Camp. Ngaga Camp and Lango Camp are intimate, sensitively constructed camps that blend expertly into their surrounds. Each has splendid communal areas and six beautiful guest suites, all made from locally sourced materials. Ngaga Camp is particularly enthralling as it is located in a marantaceae clearing, each suite raised 3 to 4 metres above the forest floor with vistas at the height of the tree canopy. Lango Camp is situated close to the Lekoli River and has elevated decks connected by timber walkways. It looks out over Lango Bai where various animals, particularly forest buffalo congregate. The elusive forest elephant also visits, and often at night can be heard feeding on the trees next to the bungalows. Mboko Camp, offers visitors breath-taking views of the interface between the tropical rainforest and grassland savannah where hundreds of towering termite mounds help create an otherworldly experience.
Each camp is unique and completely different in experience, making a visit to all three a must-do experience. Ngaga Camp is home to our western Lowland Gorillas. Magda Bermanjo and Herman, who operate under SPAC, work with the research team on building mutual relationships with our three gorilla groups. Lango Camp overlooks one of the biggest bais in Odzala-Kokoua National Park, where wildlife big and small can often be found taking in much-needed minerals and nutrients. Mboko Camp, the newest of the three, operates as the base, but hosts many of our activities with grazing forest buffalo and elephants.
The activities allow guests to explore the tapestry of forests, rivers, baïs and savannahs at the heart of the African continent, with intuitive journeys and immersive experiences. All visitors will gain a deeper understanding of the biodiversity, culture, history, wildlife and conservation of these remote regions, and find a connection with nature, where barriers are removed and one is able to fully immerse in the magic.
