Inspired Journeys is offering the unique opportunity to join Ethan (our head guide and co-founder of Inspired Journeys) on a pioneering trip to the Central African Republic. Ethan will take you deep into the jungle to Dzanga Shanga National Park, where many adventures await.

Travelers will have the opportunity to see Western Lowland Gorillas, Forest Elephant, Bongo, and possibly even Pangolin. There will also be an opportunity to meet with the local Baaka  (pygmee) community and join them on a traditional net hunting expedition.

The trip is planned for April 2017 and will be about 8 days, the costs are expected to be between 5000 and 7000 USD per person, depending on number of travelers.

Join the Rubondo Rangers in their efforts to Habituate the Chimpanzees

Rubondo Island Camp currently offers the rare and temporary opportunity to join the Rangers while they trek and habituate the Islands Chimpanzees.

You will be able to spend a night “fly camping” in the jungle as well as stay in the high end and very comfortable Rubondo Island Camp. The camp is currently offering a 3 nights for 2 deal, which is great value.

Rubondo is a perfect stop on your way between Serengeti and Virunga National Park, making it possible to combine some of the most impressive African highlights in one trip (Great Migration, Great Apes, Big 5 and the Nyiragongo Volcano)

At INSPIRED JOURNEYS we believe in Africa. Not just the parts everyone knows, but especially what we like to call UNCONVENTIONAL AFRICA. The blurry spots on the tourism maps that were either never accessible or forgotten after troubled times. Like Virunga National Park in the Congo, these are the places that still offer true authentic EXPERIENCES, and where as a traveler you can make a REAL IMPACT.

We ASPIRE TO INSPIRE our guests to experience something AUTHENTIC and EXCITING and whenever possible in a way that contributes to the COMMUNITIES and CONSERVATION of the areas they visit, by using service providers, hotels and lodges that reinvest their earnings in conservation and community support. Read more about this on our Be Inspired page.

We organize customized and personalized travel experiences from arrival in Africa to departure, including all transport, lodging and activities. We feel that adventure does not have to mean discomfort, we have the experience and know how to visit these areas in a comfortable way. Of course some activities are intrinsically tougher and rougher, making a return to the comfort of your lodge afterwards even better!

Have a browse around our website and drop us a line if you have any questions, we are looking forward to hearing from you, and to find out WHERE YOUR INSPIRATION WILL TAKE YOU!
