Odzala-Kokoua National Park is situated in the remote heart of the Congo Basin and within the world’s second largest expanse of tropical rainforest. The forests are one of the least explored parts of the Earth and the untouched beauty of this area will make you feel as if you are stepping back in time into a lost world.
From the haunting beauty of the harsh dry deserts to the emerald green bushes that hug the banks of its life-giving rivers, the startling diversity of natural habitats and resultant variety of wildlife has ensured that Botswana remains one of Africa’s premier safari destinations.

As well as the extraordinary forest biodiversity which is characteristic of such an extraordinary and complex ecosystem, Odzala is home to Africa’s densest population of western lowland gorillas and significant populations of forest elephant. This 13,600 km² of pristine wilderness is also renowned as the richest forest block in central Africa for primates with eleven diurnal species recorded, and more than 100 mammal species.
Activities range from gorilla tracking, pirogue rides along lush river systems, savannah drives, night drives, walks along lush forest streams and of course time spent at the productive forest bais.
