Dja Faunal Reserve
The Dja Faunal Reserve covers one of the largest and best protected rainforests in Africa.
It is a wilderness barely disturbed by man, with rich and often rare fauna. This includes over 107 mammals and more than 320 bird species. It is a habitat for the vulnerable western lowland gorilla and endangered western chimpanzee.
The reserve is almost completely surrounded by the Dja River, a contributary to the Congo River. The landscape within the enclosed area consists of a fairly flat plateau.
Dja Faunal Reserve is also recognized as an Important Bird Area (IBA). The globally threatened Grey-necked Picathartes and the endemic Rachel's Malimbe and Forest Swallow are among the most notable birds found here.
