Bayanga at the Dzanga-Ndoki National Park, Central African Republic

Bayanga is the administrative seat of the Reserve and the Dzanga Sangha Project. Here , in an isolated location on the banks of river, the Doli Lodge can also be found, which is the starting point for all tourist activities. Bayanga is a village that has grown since the 70s after the installation of an industrial sawmill. Originally it was a fishing village. Today Bayanga is home to approximately 4000 residents who for the most part live in wooden houses with roofs topped with palm tree leaves. Apart from the early inhabitants of fishermen and pygmies, the population is composed of migrants from others parts of the country, attracted by employment opportunities. Until 2004, the sawmill employed approximately 350 people and almost 200 people are actually employed by the Reserve.
