Get ready for a sweat that is worth every drop, and dive into the humid forest of the Djéké Triangle to track gorillas and to observe them firsthand in an astounding preserved environment.
From Bomassa, it is a 45-minute drive followed by a 2.5-hour walk to reach the Mondika research camp. Take the time to rest while keeping your eyes open for colorful birds and dragonflies in this picturesque setting, especially around the stream running through the camp.
Most of the gorilla groups home ranges are around a 1-hour walk from the camp. Be prepared for a once in a lifetime experience, during which you may be lucky enough to hear the impressive growl of a silverback or catch a glimpse of the incessant play of the endearing babies of the Mététélé group.
Western gorillas are Critically Endangered and so throughout your stay at Mondika, it is essential that you listen to and follow all instructions given by Park staff to ensure your safety and health, as well as that of the animals.
The Park staff meticulously follows all the best practices promoted by the IUCN.
