The area that is now the Central African Republic has been settled for at least 8,000 years; the earliest inhabitants were the probable ancestors of today’s Aka (Pygmy) peoples, who live in the western and southern forested regions of the country.
Situated in the Northern part of the Congo basin, the Dzanga-Sangha Protected Areas are internationally known for their beautiful rainforests, host to a remarkable diversity of wildlife and a multitude of bird species. Furthermore, a rich local culture, comprising the Sangha fishermen as well as hunting and gathering Baka, are present in the area. Apart from conservation and local development efforts, Dzanga-Sangha operates as an eco-tourism and research centre.
Sharing borders with Cameroon and Congo, the area forms part of the Sangha River Tri-National Protected Area (STN),a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Join us for incomparable expedition ventures into the extreme heart of the pristine rainforests of Central Africa.
