EXPEDITION 10-25 June 2018.
The trip is starting from Kinshasa, the capital of Democratic Republic of Congo, with two 4×4 first on N1 to Masumuna. From here it goes to Mosango, after that up north on N19 to Bulugu – totally unexplored area, and then to Kikwit. From here to Matende and up north the Kasi river across virgin forest along the N20 to cross the river at llebo. On to Mweka and Kananga. From Kananga to Lac Muamba, where we will stay in the guest house at the lake shore. And from here final stretch to Lac Fwa (-5.732231, 23.340758) – the most unique freshwater lake on planet earth with entirely endemic species of aquatic life form.
The 2 vehicles are fully equipped, with guide and driver, extra fuel and food, water etc. And we travel with special permit from the authorities of Democratic Republic of Congo.
This is a once-in a live-time expedition. Only 3 white men have ever been there to explore the Lac Fwa. The first was a Belgian Doctor to test the water. The second was Dr. Tyson Roberts – an american ichthyologist, and Heiko Bleher was the only other person, who actually went twice.
Lac Fwa is the number 1 Dream Lake on earth, and the largest natural untouched nature aquarium in freshwater on the planet. This is for no nature lover to miss. Will never happen again…
We are limited to 4 to 5 persons maximum and 3 already booked.
Below is an approximate map and the 2 vehicles.
