Ngaga Camp

Ngaga Camp is in the heart of a marantaceae forest, and consists of six creatively designed guest rooms, taking inspiration from the designs of the local B’Aka Pygmy groups. Naturally sourced materials are used extensively in the construction of the camps, sustainably harvested hardwoods, bamboo and raffia palm matting. Each of the guest rooms is raised 3-4m above the ground with a wraparound walkway allowing full appreciation of the forest canopy. The same use of natural materials is a feature of large comfortable hides at the bais where guests spend time waiting for and watching forest wildlife. This is the world’s second largest expanse of tropical rainforest. It holds Africa’s densest population of western lowland gorillas and significant populations of forest elephant. It is also renowned as the richest forest block in central Africa for primates, with eleven diurnal species recorded and more than 100 mammal species - of which around 50 are classified as medium- or large-sized. Activities consist of gorilla tracking (habituated groups) and time spent walking at the mystical forest bais (natural forest clearings).

GAME VIEWING
Ngaga Camp is at the epicentre of a population of western lowland gorillas and three different groups of this great ape are tracked and viewed here. While tracking gorillas, other primates are encountered, with Putty-nosed Monkey and Crowned Monkey being the most common. Chimpanzee also occur in the area and are occasionally encountered when on foot, but are more often heard than seen. However, their leaf nests are obvious in the canopy. Night walks are also undertaken from camp with the intention of seeing nocturnal primates such as the Central Potto and various galago species. The Hammer Bat, Africa’s largest fruit bat, is also regularly encountered roosting in the trees above.

 

ACTIVITIES
The focus at Ngaga is on tracking and observing western lowland gorillas as well as on the tropical lowland rainforest experience. As a result of the work done by gorilla researchers Dr Magda Bermejo and German Illera, three habituated groups of gorillas (Neptuno, Jupiter, Mercurio) can be tracked and observed in the area around Ngaga Camp.

• Gorilla tracking and observation
• Forest trail walks during the day in search of primates and birds
• Forest trail walks after dark in search of nocturnal mammals
• Birding
