A wild and primordial spot, the Dzanga Sangha Reserve in the Central African Republic covers a triangle of land wedged between the borders of Congo and Cameroon, occupied by intricate primeval nature, criss-crossed by waterways navigable by small wooden boats and inhabited by surprising wildlife.
A perfect destination for eco-tourism circuits, the reserve is the cradle of an explosive nature, inhabited by ancient pygmy peoples, the first to settle in the impenetrable mazes of Central Africa, those mazes that reach as far as the Congo and where Conrad set his Heart of Darkness.
Here, the Baka Pygmies are still the only custodians of the secrets of the forest, moving in symbiosis with the dense equatorial vegetation, between the Lobaye and Sangha-Mbaeré regions. It is therefore not surprising that on the trail of the gorillas, elephants, crocodiles and hippopotamuses that inhabit these green lands, it is the Baka hunters who lead the way, the only ones able to move nimbly in the environment surrounding their camps of huts, knowing how to interpret every slightest sign of nature.
