CONGO SAFARI CRUISE - CHECK DATES AND RATES

SAFARI CRUISE INTO CONGO BASIN

15 NIGHTS – 12 NIGHTS – 6 NIGHTS

A journey to the heart of Africa, in the last wild forests of the Congo.

Embark today on one of the most mysterious journeys, in the heart of one of the most difficult to access and least known regions in the world: the Congo Basin.

Let yourself be carried away on an safari cruise on one of the most powerful rivers in the world, through a country of hills and cathedral forests. Unravel the mysteries of the equatorial forest of Central Africa, the second largest green lung on the planet with its 2 million km². Share the daily life of its peoples: the Sangha-sangha people and the last tribes of hunter-gatherers, the Baaka pygmies, who have lived in perfect harmony with the forest for millennia.

Live the incredible experience of crossing a region cut off from the world, where wildlife reigns supreme. Witness the power of nature and admire the particularly abundant fauna of the Sangha: more than 350 species of birds, thousands of elephants, gorillas, chimpanzees and Bongos. It is aboard motorboats that we will go daily to observe the fauna and flora, going up the tributaries towards the clearings.

Finally, learn more and more with our naturalist guides and our guests on the diversity of fauna, flora, the great challenges of the Republic of Congo and its ecosystem.

Aboard the DUCRET-CONGO, just out of the yard, enjoy nearly 550 miles of the softness and comfort of a 4-star Boutique Hotel ship. Admire, comfortably seated on the passageway, the last bursts of a world in full evolution, discover the last truly wild forests of a world during this incredible safari cruise

This is the journey to which we invite you.
