The Congo Basin Discovery by Private Jet is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the wonders of the Congo Basin, located in Central Africa. The Condo Basin is the world’s second largest rainforest, at approximately 500 million acres, spanning across six different countries.
This tropical forest is home to a plethora of fauna and flora, including a variety of tropical plants, fish and birds, as well as forest elephants, chimpanzees, bonobos, forest buffalo and even okapi. One of the highlights of this trip is observing the Western lowland gorilla, a unique subspecies of gorilla found in this region.
Other highlights of this trip include experiencing large flocks of African grey parrots gather from far and wide for their morning “social hour”, endangered forest elephants part the mist as they emerge during twilight hours to raucously greet each other among the glades.
There are also plenty of activities to be enjoyed on this excursion – exploring a tapestry of rainforest, savanna, swamps and waterways by boat, kayak, 4×4 vehicles, and on foot. Along the way you’ll have the opportunity to connect with local cultures, learn about vital conservation tactics, and enjoy a front-row seat to some of the most awe-inspiring animal encounters in Africa.
Your adventures by day are complemented by luxury at night – with scrumptious meals, and private forest chalets for a comfortable rest.
