Congo Rainforest

Congo rainforest is in northern parts of the country.

These rainforests, particularly the Congo River basin used to be inhabited by pygmy people, who have been displaced (and later also enslaved) in this country since the European colonization in 1800s.



These forests contain elephants, all sorts of monkeys, and the largest lowland Gorilla population in Africa.

Many species have been "protected" by the wetlands around them, which have made these forests quite inaccessible.




Parts of these forests are today protected in Odzala National Park.

However Congo is a dangerous country to visit at the moment (2010). There have been many civil wars lately, and
trips to Odzala can be hazardous.
