Dzanga Bai

• Today is dedicated to the gentle giant of the forest: the African forest elephant.

• Observe between twenty to one hundred elephants feeding in the Dzanga Bai area.

• Bongos, sitatungas, forest buffaloes and many bird species will also cross our path. These are all elusive creatures, but Dzanga Bai is the best place to spot them coming out of the forest to ‘mine’ for minerals.
