Congo Basin Discovery 2023

Calling all Explorers

Join a small group of intrepid travelers and explore a tapestry of rainforest, savanna, swamps and waterways by boat, kayak, 4x4 vehicles, and on foot. Along the way 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. Observe a group of Western lowland gorillas as they socialize and forage for breakfast, watch huge flocks of African grey parrots gather from far and wide for their morning “social hour”, and witness critically endangered forest elephants part the mist as they emerge during twilight hours to raucously greet each other among the glades. Your adventures by day are complemented by luxury at night - with scrumptious meals, and private forest chalets for a comfortable rest.

We invite you to indulge your inner explorer and join us on this not-to-be-missed adventure limited to just 10 guests.

In Our Travelers' Words

The Peacock Family

The Peacock Family

Multi-Generational Safari

"Our youngest, Emily is almost 7. And mom and dad are in their late 70's. And the rest of us fall somewhere in between - and I can tell you we ALL just had the best time! It's tricky to have a plan that appeals to everyone. The thought of our daily adventure was so exciting, that no one minded the early morning wake-ups - not even the teenagers! They were often the first ones on the jeep - as they couldn't wait to start the drive each day."

Family Safari

"My father-in-law had always wanted to go to Africa, and invited us all to go with him to celebrate his 80th birthday. We went with no expectations, and the trip was beyond anything we could have imagined. In each camp we were exhilarated to be so unbelievably close to animals. Our guides really turned the safari into an educational experience for the girls with in-depth discussions on not just the wildlife, but also history, culture, and the relationship between tourism and the environment. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime trip – but we hope to return."

Active Safari

"This was our fourth trip to Africa, and by far the best. We keep going back because we love the whole experience: the people, the wildlife, their behavior, the environment, the accommodations, the music, everything. We chose Bushtracks for this custom adventure with two goals: to see the migration and to see the gorillas. Experiencing the migration was like witnessing a miracle in process. Could it get any better? Yes - the gorilla treks were the most exhausting thing we've ever done, but worth every exhilarating ache. Amazing!"

At the end of the day our travelers are most qualified to describe the African safari experience, and they certainly say it best.
