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 in the Ndzehi Forest on the western boundary of Odzala-Kokoua National Park, Ngaga Camp is surrounded by towering trees, dense marantaceae, dappled sunlight, the scent of fresh rain and delicate sounds of an equatorial African rainforest. The camp is situated within the overlapping home ranges of several groups of western lowland gorillas, three of which are habituated. A team of permanent researchers and trackers from nearby communities work with the gorilla families on a daily basis. Guests of Odzala are led on expeditions by established guides and trackers into the Marantaceae forest in search of this critically endangered species. Treks entail 3-4 guests as well as a guide and a tracker from our treasured team of researchers in an untamed forest with the gorillas going about their usual activities (often seen in the trees).
