Today, Odzala Discovery Camps - Ngaga Camp, Lango Camp and Mboko Camp - are gaining fast traction with travellers who visit to experience the western lowland gorillas, forest elephant, bongo and many more species through a 4, 7 or 10-night itinerary between the 3 camps.
Remote areas in Africa are under threat and need to be commercially viable in order to be protected. This is vision of Congo Conservation Company - to take an innovative approach to pioneering eco-tourism in the Congo Basin. The aim of CCC is to be a conservation actor by providing added value to the Odzala-Kokoua National Park and Dzanga-Sangha Special Reserve through the development of tourism, and every visit counts.
Lango Baï, a natural, swampy clearing in the forest with large deposits of minerals, holds a magnetic attraction for huge flocks of African green pigeons and African grey parrots, as well as for herds of forest buffalo by day and forest elephants by night. For bird watchers it offers excellent opportunities to watch forest birds, which curiously are not particularly wary of humans walking 3-4 m above ground level.
Lango Camp’s six guest chalets have been strategically placed on the edge of Lango Baï with views out onto the open baï, one of the most arresting views of any camp in Africa. The chalets are constructed from natural materials such as locally woven raffia palm panels and stand on stilts above the ground. Complete with mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms with hot shower and flush toilet, the chalets boast an elevated 360° wraparound walkway with views of the forest and sprawling baï.
