Desert, safari in Zakouma N.P., tribes, jungle and gorillas in Dzanga Sangha Reserve
Can a month-long trip to Africa concentrate many of the continent's highlights? The answer is yes! here you have it!
In this complete and pioneering adventure expedition through some of Africa's most unknown and attractive countries, you'll discover a variety of landscapes, cultures, and wildlife truly out of the ordinary.
We will begin our trip in N'Djamena, capital of Chad. We will travel to the Ennedi plateau, one of the most spectacular deserts in Africa and the world. *Visit our blog about Ennedi*
For three days we will explore the incredible rock formations of Ennedi. Imposing stone arches, deep gorges such as the Archei Guelta, rock labyrinths and some of the rock art that many of its caves hide, will be some of the wonders we can visit in Ennedi. We will also see the camel caravans guided by the Toubou nomads.
Zakouma National Park
We will spend two full days in one of the most remote reserves in Africa.
Zakouma Nationa Park (visit our blog about Zakouma) has become a stimulating alternative for those looking for "sensations" different from others conventional safari in East or South Africa. In Zakouma National Park we can find large mammals in privacy, far from the crowds of other parks on the continent.
In this expedition you to see and know the culture of one of the most fascinating tribes in Africa, such as the Ba'Aka pygmies with whom we will spend one night in the forest and track the Dzanga Sangha Reserve in the Central African Republic. If we are lucky, we will also have the opportunity to visit and meet other ethnic groups such as the unmistakable Wodaabe, the nomads Toubou, who travel the desert with their herds of camels, the Arabs or different subgroups of Fulani.
Ethnic groups, all of them that conserve much of their original culture, since they live in really very isolated zones of Africa.
Congo jungle and western lowland gorillas
We will enter the Congo jungle in search of lowland gorillas and forest elephants.
The tropical rainforests of the Congo Basin make up the second largest area of tropical forest after the Amazon. These forests are vital for the survival of our closest biological relatives: gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos.
We will spend several days in the Dzanga Sangha Reserve, where besides seeing gorillas, elephants, buffaloes and bonobos, we will make some cultural visits with the baka pygmies.
These are some of the main reasons why we think that this expedition to Chad, Cameroon and Central African Republic, is one of the most complete and interesting trips you can go in the African continent.
From the desert to the jungle. The best of Africa in a single expedition. We will travel from northern Chad to the jungles of Cameroon and the Central African Republic.
