Congo Safari Cost. Best Tips on Planning a Budget Safari

The Republic of the Congo, often called ‘the Congo’ is situated in Central-Western Africa and along the Equator.

Surrounded by Cameroon to the north-west and the Central African Republic to the northeast, it shares borders with the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the east and south. Gabon and the glistening Atlantic Ocean lie to its west.

Almost sixty years ago, in 1960, the Congo became an independent nation. Its fascinating history begins with its Pygmy inhabitants around 1500 BCE and continues into the present day. The powerful Congo River—the world’s second-largest river and an important commercial route—is usually associated with noteworthy dates that occur between these times.

Among the initial groups to forge trade connections into the river basin were three Bantu kingdoms, and in 1484, the Portuguese explorer Diogo Cão reached the mouth of the river. In 1880, the French colonial era began, and with it came the building of a train that would connect the Atlantic port of Pointe-Noire to Brazzaville, the capital city, and thereby avoid the rapids of the Congo River.

Odzala-Kokoua National Park is located in the basin of the River Congo, thus YZ is also interested in the river these days. One of the most crucial areas in Central Africa for protecting gorillas and forest elephants! There are currently three safari lodges within the park, and after visiting them, we are happy to recommend them to anyone interested in safaris.

Guests of Odzala-Kokoua National Park often enter the Congo via Maya-Maya Airport in Brazzaville and then make the trip to the park by road or air. Read our park report and accommodation sections for further travel information, or get in touch with YZ to talk to one of our staff members.
