Dzanga-Sangha rain forest

The Dzanga-Sangha rain forest is alive with the sounds of snakes, chimpanzees, birds, insects, and many exotic creatures. Humans also live in the Dzanga-Sangha. Located in Central Africa near the Equator, the weather here is always warm and rainy. Half of all the elephants in Africa live in this rain forest. In fact, the name "Dzanga" means "village of elephants."
