There are several national parks in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Okapi Wildlife Reserve
Situated in the North-Eastern side of DRC is a wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site created in 1992 to conserve the only population of the Endangered Okapi (only found in DRC). These giraffid artiodactyls mammal species look like Zebras but are actually the closest relative of the Giraffes. Besides these mammals that are well known in this Reserve, there are over 17 primate species, over 2000 Leopards, 4000 forest elephants, the Giant ground Pangolin, water chevrotain, African dwarf crocodiles and over 370 bird species. If you are interested in visiting a destination with few tourists, then make your next trip to DRC’s Okapi Wildlife Reserve and you will yearn to stay for more days.
Salonga National Park
At the heart of the Central basin of River Congo exists a UNESCO World Heritage Site (declared in 1984) that measures over 33,350 square kilometers making it DRC’s and Africa’s largest Tropical forest reserve/National Park and the world’s second largest Tropical Forest National park after Tumucumaque National Park in Brazil. This remarkable site was established in 1970 and is rich with biological diversity because it is a home to over 51 mammal species including several endemic endangered species.
