The truth about Lope

Written on: April 02, 2015   |   I visited in August 2012 Lopé National Park has an unusual ecosystem showing ecological and biological evolution processes and its numerous petroglyphs showing human migrations and evolution through the ages. This is why it is a worldly heritage listed by UNESCO.
Some of the mammal species you will see include the forest elephant, western lowland gorilla, chimpanzee, mandrill, forest buffalo, sun-tailed guenon, leopard, black colobus, sitantunga and yellow-backed duiker. Bird species include rosy bee-eater, crowned hawk eagle, Dja river warbler, great blue turaco, grey-necked rock fowl (picathartes), the chocolate-backed kingfisher, emerald cuckoo and black guinea fowl.
That being said, animals are very shy due to poaching, which makes it very difficult to see game.
