Ngaga Camp

Odzala-Kokoua National Park, Republic of Congo

Set in the heart of a rainforest block, Ngaga Camp is small and personal, perfectly located for Gorilla tracking in the Odzala-Kokoua National Park.

The camp consists of only six guest rooms, each with a wrap-around walkway which gives a wonderful experience of being surrounded by the rainforest.

Three of the rooms are located to the left of the area where the office, dining-room, lounge and fire deck are, and another three to the right of the arrivals/reception area.

The property is fronted with a fire deck, lounge, rest room and dining room. 

Guests can spend their days tracking and observing the Western lowland gorillas as well as searching for smaller primates such as Putty-nosed and Crowned monkeys. 

Because there are less Forest elephants and Forest buffalo around Ngaga than is the case at the other camps, venturing out on foot at night in search of nocturnal wildlife with your guide, is safe. Guests may see Galagos (bushbabies), as well as Potto and Angwantibo - all of these African prosiminans are represented in the area.

Lucky visitors spot Palm civet, various species of Duiker (small forest-dwelling antelopes) and even the critically endangered Tree pangolin. Nocturnal birds include various owls, notably Red-chested owlet. Overhead, keep a lookout for the large Hammer-head bat. 

Gorilla tracking is offered daily and is possible largely thanks to tireless work conducted over many years by Dr Magda Bermejo and German Illera. (The population of Lowland gorilla is thought to be around 105 in the extended area, with two of the 7 groups having been habituated.  

After gorilla tracking, guests can cool off in the clear, cool and fresh waters of the Ngaga Stream below the camp. Near some natural pools, there is also a wooden deck at the edge of the stream, providing an alternate place to spend the middle of the day.

Accommodation Reviews

Hi Craig

We had a great holiday – I would rate it flawless

The only real trek [as the kids would say] was having to fly from Brazzaville thru Addis to get to Sao Tome – hopefully air links in West Africa will improve in time

For us The Congo was the highlight – safe well organised and underpopulated in its northern half. CCC run a great show

Sao Tome Principe [particularly Principe] were very good as well – got to see a lot of endemic birdlife.   You were bang on the mark picking Sundy Praia for us – it is the best of their three offerings [I think]

Snorkelling on Principe was a little disapointing outside of the unoficial marine reserve at Bon Bon – they will have to create a marine reserve to enable waters to repopulate possibly

Yes we will be back to Rainbow for further African holidays in the future with Ethiopia and the Luanga valley high on the list

Thanks very much Craig – great job

Well done

Paul

Hi Craig and Derek,

 

Many thanks - we had a great time! The trip exceeded our expectations - all the logistics/transport/guiding were great!

 

Our biggest surprise was that as a result of so few guests going to Odzala we had our own chef travelling with us! We had successful and very enjoyable gorilla sightings on both treks. Odzala was very remote - exactly what we were looking for!

 

We will contact you for our next trip.............

 

Regards.

 

Duncan, Carol, David and Deborah
