Brief

Enjoy an utterly unique African Safari and visit a lost world in Conkouati Douli National Park.

Tour Detail

Enjoy an utterly unique African Safari and visit a Lost World full of chimpanzees and much more at spectacular Conkouati-Douli National Park, the forests and rivers which inspired some of the animations of “Avatar”.

Some of this tour takes place by silent boat down a river system inside the huge national park spanning Congo and Gabon.

Conkouati Douli Park is more about scenery than wildlife, and has some of the best views of the natural landscapes of the Congo and Africa, where the rainforest meets the river mouth, and eventually the Equatorial Forests of Gabon and Congo meander into the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

This is a popular and essential weekend trip from Pointe Noire, and the best way to get away for those who visit the city or who have to stay for business on a short trip.


Itinerary


Day 1: Depart for Conkouati-Douli


In the morning, get picked up from your chosen location in Pointe Noire and drive on a scenic route to Conkouati-Douli National Park. This beautiful coastal region bordering Gabon has animals such as cevettes, monkeys, sea turtles, chimpanzees, lowland gorillas, elephants, and in some places even glowing fish and photokinetic plants and insects. They are hard to spot in the dense forests, but the forests themselves are the most beautiful and unique feature of the Conkouati Ecosystem. Dinner and overnight in Park Lodge Bungalows, where you'll meet the organizations that work with and protect the chimpanzees and other primates, and the integrity of the park.

Day 2: Explore Conkouati Douli, Visit Chimpanzees, River Expedition, and Sunset Seaside.

Today you'll leave the riverside bungalows by boat through the stunning, thick, twisting mangroves to visit several islands in the famous Douli Triangle, inhabited by chimpanzees who have gained protected status thanks to interested tourists like you and international conservation efforts. You will get to meet who troops and families of chimps who are living in a wild but safe setting from poaching, far away in the middle of a sprawling national park.

In the afternoon take a few hours paddle by canoe down the rivers to enjoy the scenery and possibly spot elephants, leopards, cevettes (huge cats that look like leopards,) and if you're very lucky, even gorillas. It is rare to spot these animals inside the park, as the foliage is so thick, and they are not tracked or bothered by humans much. You are, however, guaranteed plenty of great scenery, to meet plenty of chimpanzees (your primate cousins,) and plenty of good times.

In the sunset of the evening, you will finally make your way out of the rivers to the Atlantic Ocean, on perhaps the most secluded and beautiful beach you've ever seen. Behind you are clear freshwater rivers running in to dense green rainforest draping sheer mountains. In front of you is spotless sand thrashed by powerful waves and salty ocean air. If you happened to bring a surfboard. Now is the time to use it as well, but this is the perfect end to your trip. If you're very lucky, spot sea turtles as they come in to nest or chill on the beach. After sundown stop for beers at a local village or else head back in the LandCruiser to the bungalows for overnight and dinner.

Day 3: Animal & Park Viewing, Return to Pointe Noire.


After breakfast, enjoy morning park viewing, and ocean zone marine park viewing. Later on drive to Pointe-Noire in the afternoon, and along the way stop for pictures and vista gazing. Finish you trip at your chosen location in Pointe Noire.
