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.

"This was an exceptional journey. Turkey has such an ancient history that is there to observe. The trip made the most of our time, was very efficiently planned, led by an exceptional guide. We visited so many ancient sites, observing layers of history going back to 12,000 BC, at the same time engaging the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea."
