 TOUR DESCRIPTION

We shall leave for the discovery of a forest that is dense and preserved since time immemoriable.

This eco-tourism package will take you to the DJA forest reserve where you are excepted to stay in camping within tents, in the heart of the equatorial forest or at the homes of the BAKA pygmies as these authentic forest dwellers immersed you in their world.

You shall have the opportunity to visit a people with the oldest civilisations in Cameroon and the world at large; the Baka pygmies and the “BADJUE” people of East Cameroon.

Several days are required for any visitor to better understand the culture and way of life of these natural people who live very close to nature.

Within the Dja reserve area, we will discover from village to village, the way of life, the beliefs, as well as the ancestral practices of these native people.

We shall discover among others, a magnificent virgin forest, with giant trees, an extraordinary nature which shelters men, the animals and the ecology.

We shall traverse the equatorial rainforest through several indescribable landscapes. We shall sleep in exceptional canopies, formed by the leaves and branches of triennial trees and be seduced by the sounds of the birds, monkeys and other wild animals in the virgin forest.
