Accommodation in the Congo is limited to a handful of international hotels in the capital Brazzaville and a small collection of eco-friendly lodges tucked away in the rainforests of Odzala-Kokou National Park.

From Brazzaville, it’s a 2-hour flight to the national park, followed by a scenic 4x4 road transfer to the camp of your choice. It’s well worth the effort: these small and intimate camps have been built to exacting ecological requirements and offer both comfort and adventure in one of the world’s most remote and pristine environments.
