Dzanga Sangha Reserve


In Dzanga Sangha Reserve, the most marginalised peoples have found new revenue sources as ecotourism projects are becoming successful. Baka "Pygmies" are finally being paid in cash for having managed their forest livelihoods well for generations. In Dzanga-Sangha Reserve, a gorilla habituation project presages a new era for local people. Huge numbers of tourists stream into the area each year, where they are offered extraordinary opportunities to accompany the Baka "Pygmies" on guided tours to observe western lowland gorillas and see the elusive forest elephants.
