Tei Wei (til you're tired) tourist camp in the village of Gunzi offers the most authentic over-night jungle experience in the interior. You will be accompanied by guides who live in Gunzi and work in the jungle as hunters and farmers. The guides are second to none: they know the names and special (medicinal) uses of trees and plants, are superb bird callers, can spot and shoot animals from absurd distances and even SMELL snakes!
Available tours: 1 hour hike into the jungle, day hike to a jungle look-out tower, and one or multiple nights in the jungle. On one night tours, a house has been built for a cozy over-night jungle experience. For a bigger challenge, best sharpen your machete and borrow one of the hammocks from the camp--you'll be strung up to trees or build your own camp while hiking, fishing and hunting with the guides. Negotiate price before the hike (Usually: 1 night = 60 USD)
Guides speak Dutch and English (maybe French).
