Reasons to Visit
Dzanga-Sangha National Park
This national park, wedged into the triangle of southwestern CAR Cameroon from Congo, is probably the one corner of the country still attracting visitors. Gorillas, elephants, western lowland gorillas, bongo antelopes, forest buffalo , a multitude of bird species and the Baka people are all found in this remote corner of Africa.
Chutes de Boali
These waterfalls tumble 50m (164ft), which is just a whisker more than Niagara can manage. Although no more than a trickle when its dry, they are dramatic during the rainy season. A small entry fee applies. The water is controlled by a huge Chinese-built dam upriver, but they usually release some water on Sunday for the tourists.
