Welcome to Parc National Conkouati-Douli
Congo's most diverse national park, Parc National Conkouati-Douli, stretches from the Atlantic Ocean through a band of coastal savannah up into jungle-clad mountains. Poaching problems (fed by demand for bushmeat in Pointe-Noire) mean the wildlife-watching has for a long time been somewhat limited, but recent investment in the park infrastructure and in security means that the elephants, gorillas and buffalo that live here are becoming more common, and more easily seen. Still, coming here remains challenging, with almost no tourist infrastructure, long drives over terrible roads and extremely basic accommodation. However, if wilderness appeals, this is the park for you.
