The trip involves three superb properties. First, you’ll stay at Ngaga, a very adventurous camp situated just outside Odzala-Kokoua in the Ndzehe Concession. Next up is Mboko Camp, where you’ll enjoy comfortable accommodation close to the River Likeni. Lango, the third camp, provides well-elevated chalet rooms with amazing views over a nearby wildlife hotspot! And lastly you’ll return briefly to Mboko. Solo travellers, please note that you do not pay a single surcharge on flights, and each camp’s single supplement is reduced to 25 per cent for departures on the first Monday and first Thursday of every month.

An exciting range of activities is available. Known as ‘gorilla central’, Ngaga’s specialty is gorilla treks – and the camp also offers birdwatching, nature trails, night walks, stream swims, and village visits.
