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.
Originally founded as a centre for primate research and a pilot gorilla tourism project, Ngaga Camp was the first camp to receive support from the Congo Conservation Company joining communities, science and tourism on the grounds of conservation. Located outside the park boundary in the Ndzehe concession, overlooking a canopy of primary forest above a forest stream, Ngaga Camp is situated within the overlapping home ranges of several groups of western lowland gorillas, three of which are habituated.
A focal point for world-class research as well as unforgettable primate encounters, Ngaga Camp’s unique design evokes the fun and mystery of childhood treehouses. From the six elevated guest rooms, wrap around walkways allow you to peer directly into the forest canopy. Each chalet has an en-suite bathroom with hot shower and flush toilet, mosquito net, fans and South African power points with European and UK adapters, and environmentally friendly soaps and shampoos.
