Lesio Luna Natural Reserve, a haven in Congo Brazzaville, invites tourists to an immersive journey where they can witness the majestic beauty of African wildlife, thousands of vibrant bird species, and, in a rare encounter, come face to face with the largest group of wild gorillas in Africa amidst the lush and unspoiled landscapes.

 
Go on a boat trip on the Congo River, formerly called the Zaire River, and get a new perspective from the water on one of Africa’s longest rivers. Attend a Kintengue Traditional dance performance with us and immerse yourself further in the cultural diversity of this country.
