In our overland trips in Central Africa we will go out in search of the lowdown gorillas in national parks like the Dzanga Sangha in CAR or Odzala in Congo, but we will also prepare savannah safaris in remote parks like Zakouma in Chad.
On the coast of Gabon it is possible to visit one of the most spectacular national parks in Africa: Luango. In it we can see elephants and hippos on the beaches.
