Bateke Plateau National Park

Kinshasa, Congo

A better way to refer to this park is as ‘Gorilla Land.’ One of Africa’s highlights is its wildlife population, and this national park doesn’t disappoint. Its natural and cultural significance has earned it a UNESCO National Heritage Site title, giving it recognition worldwide.

The park stretches for about 2,034 kilometers and spans from the Congolese border through the very southern part of Gabon. Visitors will find the park full of scrublands, grassy savannahs, and thick forests as well as elephants, monkeys, tigers, birds, and gorillas. Due to the laid back political system, the park is easy to visit and can be explored by boat and also by foot.
