Africa and the Middle East Republic of the Congo
Gorilla Tracking in the Congo
Deep in the brush, you hear a rustling. Behind a thick curtain of green, you glimpse a giant black creature almost twice your size. Your heart races with the thrill of it: a western lowland gorilla just a few yards away. The beast is tranquil, pre-occupied with plucking lunch from trees. You look to the right, to the left … and realize you’ve stumbled on an entire clan at mealtime – in one of the world’s most treasured habitats.
Lowland gorillas are the stars of the Republic of Congo’s M’Boko and Ndzehi concessions. But they share this lush stage with colubus monkeys, chimpanzees, and forest elephants, among countless others. Boundless Journeys has partnered with Wilderness Safaris so you can go in search of them all – mostly on foot, always with expert guides. From remote luxury camps, you’ll cruise up the Lekoli River on a flat-bottomed pirogue. Trek jungle trails with your eyes trained for myriad bird species. And observe a startling array of wildlife from strategically placed hides.

"When I planned to make a trip to Italy I knew I wanted to feel it as much as see it. I was hoping to eat good food, drink great wine, and then hike off all those calories. I did just that, while getting vast knowledge about the art, grapes, and architecture. Our guides Alex and Christopher are an asset to your company. Without them the trip never would have been as memorable and enjoyable. We all agree it exceeded our expectations. I have begun my own 'Boundless Journey.'"
