Not to be confused with the Democratic Republic of Congo, it’s landlocked and much larger neighbour, the Republic of Congo is known for its rainforest reserves and wild lowland gorillas.
Discover the country
You can find the gorillas, as well as forest elephants and hooting troops of chimpanzees, in Odzala-Kokoua National Park. Take a private safari to guarantee a close encounter, or camp out in the wilderness for up to three nights – if it’s within budget.
