Dzanga Bai is a huge clearing in the middle of the jungle in the Central African Republic, where herds of up to 200 forest elephants congregate to suck up mineral deposits. This pocket of protected forest is part of the Dzanga Sangha reserve in the remote south-western tip of the country. This large (but shrinking) tract of virgin rainforest houses an extraordinary array of indigenous wildlife, including elephants and western lowland gorillas.
