Chance encounter with Western Lowland Gorilla, Odzala, Republic of Congo

October 7, 2013 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Visits to Odzala-Kokoua National Park in the Republic of Congo use both Lango Camp (situated on Lango Bai) and Ngaga Camp (in the Ndzehi Forest).

All of our guests travel by road between these two camps traversing a number of habitat types from savannah to gallery forest to primary forest. Some of our most exciting sightings of species like leopard have taken place on this road, but we have been surprised at how regularly we have had glimpses of western lowland gorillas crossing the road at various locations.

This video shows our best sighting yet when we encountered a large group near Ngaga Camp that slowly crossed the road in front of us, clearly as interested in us as we were in them.
