Things to do at Odzala Wilderness Camps

Whilst the main focus at Ngaga Camp is gorilla tracking and research, Lango Camp offers a complete rainforest experience.

Gorilla tracking – Ngaga Camp

Excursions to track habituated groups of Africa's highest concentration of western lowland gorilla are led by a guide and skilled local tracker who are able to follow signs on the forest floor leading you to the chosen gorilla group for the day.

Informative Talks – Ngaga Camp

Fascinating talks take place on the western lowland gorilla, the research project in the area, conservation concerns for the species as a whole, together with more background on their biology and ecology.

Guided forest walks – Ngaga and Lango Camps

Walk along lush forest streams and salines in search of primates, other mammals and birds. Odzala has the highest number (11) of diurnal primates for any forest block in central Africa as well as forest buffalo, forest elephant and unusual antelope.

Boating trips – Lango Camp

View birds and other wildlife from the comfort of a traditional flat-bottomed motorised pirogue.

Night drives and walks – Ngaga and Lango Camps

Night drives allow us to search for more reclusive species such as spotted hyaena, leopard, golden cat and water chevrotain. Night walks can reveal another fascinating forest element and even a glimpse of a central potto.

Savannah drives – Lango Camp

Leisurely nature drives through Odzala’s savannah areas may reveal serval and harnessed bushbuck.

Excellent Forest Birding

Odzala, one of Birdlife International’s Important Bird Areas (IBAs), harbours 430 bird species including many specials such as black-casqued wattled hornbills, plumed guineafowl, Hartlaub’s duck, and many more.
