Visit Lola ya Bonobo Sanctuary

visit header

Lola ya Bonobo is the only place in the world that you can meet your closest living relatives face to face. Imagine sitting quietly watching the bonobos emerge from the forest, or having young bonobos dance around you. Visiting Lola is a once in a lifetime opportunity that only a handful of people in the world will ever experience, and at the same time, you will contribute to the ongoing conservation of bonobos.

Stay in the villa that the former leader of Congo, Mbutu Sese Seko, used as his weekend retreat. Relax as a personal chef cooks delicious French and Congolese meals . Go to sleep and wake up with the bonobos calling out their greetings.
