6 Dzanga Bai

Today we visit the Dzanga Bai where we will have the chance to observe between 20-100 forest elephants that regularly feed in this area. Bongos, sitatungas, forest buffaloes and many bird species can also be seen in the Dzanga Bai area. They are usually very elusive animals but Dzanga Bai is a great place to spot them as they come out of the forest to 'mine' for minerals.
