Bonobo Sanctuary Half-Day Tour (Lola Ya Bonobo)

Your guide will come to your hotel in the morning and pick you up in a comfortable 4 WD. The road after Kinshasa will be a little bumpy, but you will most likely be distracted by the scenery outside. Once you arrive at the Park, which is surrounded by the rainforest and has a lake inside, we can proceed to the trail that goes around it. If we are lucky enough, staff scientists or researchers will give us an introduction to the life of the bonobos in the wild and in the sanctuary. Some times they can be busy, feeding little baby bonobos or helping with daily needs of the sanctuary. You will be able to see several families, living on the territory, which highly resembles their natural habitat deep in the north of Congolese jungle.After the visit, the driver can take to a restaurant for lunch or just drop you off at your hotel. After the Lola Ya Bonobo we will continue to see the waterfalls of Lukaya and hike a small lake of MaVallee, which is so popular with local and gets very busy on the weekends.
