Tours in the Republic of Congo

The Republic of the Congo, also known as Congo-Brazzaville is about as far of the main stream tourist trail as you can get. Don't let that put you off though as it has jungles hiding half the world's lowland gorillas, masses of forest elephants, and troops of chimpanzees marauding through pristine rain forest. Close to the geographical “Heart of Africa“, our tour visits the renowned Odzala National Park, a national park in the Cuvette-Ouest Region. A place of astounding biodiversity, Odzala is a place few people have ever had the chance to visit. Undiscovered Destinations is delighted to be able to offer trips to the Odzala and the chance to visit the forests of the Congo Basin, in safety and comfort.
