Travel Guide Africa Democratic Republic of Congo Salonga National Park

Introduction

The Salonga National Park protects the largest tropical rainforest reserve in Africa and is located in the Congo Basin, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Animals here include species like bonobos (one of four human apes) and rare special species like salonga monkeys, Tshuapa red colobus Zaire peacocks, forest elephants, and African slender-snouted crocodiles. Although you are likely to see many animals here you won't see anywhere else in Africa, the park is not visited that often and safety forms the main problem for travellers these days. It is placed on the Unesco World Heritage List.
