Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the west, the African Rift Valley in the east, the Sahel plains in the north, and the Zambezi basin in the south. Central Africa is the region of Africa you need to explore.
Angola with untamed beaches, wild national parks and vibrant emerging cities, this country has a surprisingly tropical rainforest in the north, desert dunes far to the south and the third-highest waterfalls in the whole of the African continent.
Cameroon, a country to explore the rainforest around Réserve du Dja and travel to the desert region of the Sahel near Maroua. Home to West Africa’s highest peak, the volcano Mt Cameroon, and the beautiful Mandara Mountains to the north, you will be delighted with the bustling cities of Yaoundé and Kumbo. And in between, we invite you to the beaches to the west around the city of Douala, the home of Pygmy tribes and Fulani herdsmen.
Gabon, a land of astonishing wildlife, includes the lowland gorilla and chimpanzee. With its unspoilt Atlantic Coastline, be on the lookout for endangered turtles and embark on a whale watching quest.
The Congo Basin, spanning across six countries—Cameroon, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon teems with wildlife and exhibits a mosaic of rivers, forests, savannas, swamps and flooded forests. On your travels discover Gorillas, elephants and buffalo.
The Central African Republic covers treeless expanses of open semi-arid Sahelian grassland to the north and dense Congo jungle to the south along the Ubangi and Sangha Rivers. Home to many different species from the beautiful blue headed doves to the sleek and slender servals, in the savannah, you’ll discover lions, cheetahs, leopards, baboons, antelope, buffalo, and species of insects, amphibians and reptiles.
Found within these regions is a wide range of vegetation such as scrubby drought-resistant shrubs, more leafy forests than you can imagine, giving the Republic a much more extensive range of animal species to fill the two different habitats.
