The World List of Natural Sites of Tourist Attraction
The Dja Faunal Reserve covers one of the largest and best protected rainforests in Africa. It is a wilderness barely disturbed by man, with rich and often rare fauna. This includes over 107 mammals and more than 320 bird species. It is a habitat for the vulnerable western lowland gorilla and endangered western chimpanzee.
The reserve is almost completely surrounded by the Dja River, a contributary to the Congo River. It covers 5,260 square kilometres. The landscape within the enclosed area consists of a fairly flat plateau.
