Congo

The hunting area here encompasses approximately 150,000 hectares or approximately 360,000 acres, adjacent to the Odzala National Park in the Republic of the Congo. This park was first protected in 1935 and declared a biosphere (meaning it is an ecosystem with plants and animals of unusual scientific and natural interest) reserve in 1997. The park has approximately 100 mammal species and one of the continent’s most diverse primate populations. It has one of the highest densities of western lowland gorilla and chimpanzee in Central Africa. Results of a 1998 survey conducted in the northern part of the park (where the hunting area is located) showed the presence of 13 large mammals, the most frequent of which were Bongo, Forest Buffalo, African Elephant, Red River Hog, Giant Forest Hog, Gorilla and Sitatunga. Other species of antelope include the Bay Duiker, Black Fronted Duiker, Peter’s Duiker, Yellow Back Duiker, Ogilby’s Duiker, White-Bellied Duiker and Bates Pygmy Antelope, including approximately 440 bird species having been recorded. In addition to all of the above, the camp is very friendly, comfortable, clean and very modern, especially considering the location!
