The Ozouga camp is located on a savannah clearing at the edge of the forest. This location provides the unique opportunity to encounter elephants (Loxodonta Africana), red river hogs (Potamochoerus porcus) and other primate species such as Red-capped mangabeys (Cercocebus torquatus) and Putty-nosed monkeys (Cercopithecus nictitans), which also roam the area. The camp consists of several wooden cabins, one office, a dining room, a kitchen, and an outdoor lab station.
The field team is composed of pygmy trackers, local eco-guides, international research assistants, a cook, a driver and a camp manager.
