Gorilla Trekking in Republic of Congo

By Samantha Coles

The Congo might not be the first location you think of when considering gorilla trekking (most head to Uganda or Rwanda), but western lowland gorillas can be found in the Republic. According to the founder of The Explorations Company, Nicola Shepherd, the Congo is one of the best places in the world to have a primate experience, and Odzala-Kokoua National Park is the ideal place to see them.

Bespoke Itinerary

The Explorations Company can curate your ideal itinerary. Shepherd works with The Congo Conservation Company (CCC), part of the Sabine Plattner African Charities (SPAC); both are committed to protecting the wildlife and its habitat in the Congo Basin, as well as providing for the local communities.

SPAC supports a long-term gorilla conservation and research program, so you can be sure that your exploration is supporting these elusive creatures. Stay at Lango Camp for spectacular views and delicious food.

From $7,700 per person for seven days. Contact Nicola Shepherd, founder,, +1 855 216 5040,
