Congo Basin Discovery 2024

The Congo Basin Discovery by Private Air is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the wonders of the Congo Basin located in Central Africa. The Condo Basin is the world’s second-largest rainforest, at approximately 500 million acres, spanning six countries.

This tropical forest is home to a plethora of fauna and flora, including a variety of tropical plants, fish, and birds, as well as forest elephants, chimpanzees, bonobos, forest buffalo, and even okapi. One of the highlights of this trip is observing the Western Lowland Gorilla, a unique subspecies of gorilla found in this region.

Other highlights of this trip include experiencing large flocks of African Grey Parrots gathering from far and wide for their morning “social hour” and endangered Forest Elephants parting the mist as they emerge during twilight hours to raucously greet each other among the glades.

There are also activities to be enjoyed on this excursion – exploring a tapestry of rainforest, savanna, swamps, and waterways by boat, kayak, 4×4 vehicles, and on foot. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to connect with local cultures, learn about vital conservation tactics, and enjoy a front-row seat at some of the most awe-inspiring animal encounters in Africa.

Your adventures by day are complemented by luxury at night with scrumptious meals and private forest chalets for a relaxing rest.
