Epulu is a tiny jungle settlement in north eastern Congo. Known principally as the site of the conservation project aimed at preserving the large, girraffe-like mammal, the okapi, from extinction, Epulu offers a unique interface between the settled european presence of the conservationist and the local culture. The conservation project is also a place where travellers, by arrangement, can be guided (by armed guard and trackers) to a meeting several hours walk into the jungle with nomadic pygmies. On the bank of a medium size river, Epulu is a beautiful spot.
