Central African Republic - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS


The Bayaka Pygmies call themselves Bisi Ndima, the people of the forest, and are one of at least eleven different Pygmy groups; and the original inhabitants of this section of the Congo-Basin rainforest found in the southwestern Central African Republic and northern Republic of Congo between the Sangha and Ubangui Rivers. Defined as a pygmy tribe by anthropologists, the average height of the men is no more than 150 cm, the women even smaller.

Activities include learning about their traditional medicines, dances and methods of hunting from these ancient people.
