CAMEROON/C.A.R.


Our tour to deepest Central Africa will see us take a road trip across Cameroon and into Central African Republic. During the trip we will meet pygmies and have the chance to see Western gorillas and the elusive African forest elephants.



Please note that some sections of these tours travel to areas where the British FCO advises against all travel to.

We research the security of our destinations highly and safety is a priority for us, however, we advise you to do your own research as well to ensure you are comfortable with your trip.

Please note these travel warnings may also affect travel insurance for these regions, please contact us for advice on this.


We run this tour once a year each December, starting and ending in Yaounde, Cameroon.

Multiple entry visa is required for Cameroon whilst we arrange visa on arrival for C.A.R.

Our time in C.A.R is solely in the secure Sangha Reserve, away from the unrest further East.

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.
