REPUBLIC OF CONGO & CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC 


Odzala and Sangha offer the most exciting and uniquely different wildlife experience on the African continent. There is nothing else like this rainforest safari. 

Here you explore bai's, rivers and forests to see gorillas, chimps, pangolin, bongo, forest elephant, forest buffalo and a multitude of birds and other mammals deep in the African rainforests. It is a discovery that is safe, professionally guided and managed from start to finish.

In a time of global travel complexity, the relative ease of exploring this region is appealing to a wider group of travellers.  As a trusted safari partner, CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY, manages all in country travel logistics and offers the complete rainforest immersion over 7+ days in complete safety.

The CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY reopens their camps from the 20th December 2021. For the first 3 months there is limited availability. Space for new bookings will reopen for travel from 4 April 2022.

Finding your way through COVID Protocols

TESTING AND HEALTH PROCEDURES 

With many travel restrictions across Africa, getting to and from Congo-Brazzaville is relatively straight forward.  

BEFORE ARRIVAL:
  • A negative PCR test is required 72 hours prior to ARRIVING in Brazzaville.
UPON ARRIVAL @ MAYA MAYA AIRPORT:
  • An additional PCR test is required for all passengers at the airport. This costs XAF 40,000 / EUR 60 / USD 70 per person and can be paid for in cash, in person. 
  • Every passenger completes a Traveller Personal Health Form, Passenger Information Form, and International Embarkation / Disembarkation Form. The Congo Conservation team can assist with providing these documents prior to departure. 
GORILLA TRACKING:
  • Once you have flown to Odzala, a negative rapid test is required before guests have access to the forest for gorilla viewing.
  • This test is carried out at Ngaga Camps with immediate results available.
  • The cost is USD 15 per person per test, and included on your reservations invoice.
BEFORE INTERNATIONAL DEPARTURE:
  • Departure requirements are stipulated by the country of arrival.  If a PCR test is required, this can be completed in Brazzaville at the Radisson Blu Hotel, with results within 4 - 6 hours. 
  • This test costs USD 55 per person and can be either invoiced and paid in advance with CCC, or paid directly in cash to the testing facility (in XAF only - money exchange available at Radisson Blu).
  • All arrangements can be coordinated through reservations, including complimentary transport to the testing facility.

Congo Conservation Company Specials
We continue to see postponements and a few cancellations across Southern Africa for the next few weeks and months. But we have been fortunate to also receive some new last minute enquiries.

I have to report that life in South Africa is great! Summer is here and we are not plagued by Omicron, but rather all getting on with our day to day living in a responsible manner: HANDS. FACE. SPACE. We are however super upset, annoyed and down right incensed with the travel restrictions and sincerely hope to see these lifted very soon.

Please continue to book across our Portfolio with confidence.
