In a brand new episode of the highly anticipated series “Into the Congo with Ben Fogle,” intrepid adventurer Ben Fogle embarks on his most daring expedition yet, delving deep into the heart of the Congo. Widely regarded as one of the most mysterious and treacherous places on our planet, the Congo presents Fogle with an extraordinary challenge.

Throughout this series, Fogle journeys into the remote and breathtaking rainforests of the Congo to fully immerse himself in the lives of indigenous tribes who have managed to preserve their ancient ways amidst modernity. As he ventures deeper into this remarkable land, he encounters an array of awe-inspiring wildlife, including close encounters with majestic lowland gorillas—an experience that is sure to leave viewers in awe.

From Brazzaville’s bustling streets to the shores of the mighty Congo River, Fogle meets a diverse range of individuals who call this region home. His encounters include extraordinary glass-eating voodoo wrestlers and dapper fashionistas adorned in unique attire—a testament to Congo’s vibrant culture which serves as “the beating heart” of Africa.

This premiere episode sees Ben Fogle arrive in Brazzaville—the dynamic capital city—before embarking on an arduous two-day trek through challenging terrain towards a secluded tribe residing deep within the jungle. The Mbendjele BaYaka tribe represents one of humanity’s oldest cultures that has managed to endure through generations. Their semi-nomadic lifestyle is characterised by traditional leaf huts that have never been documented on film before. Fully embracing every aspect of their daily routines, Ben actively participates in building his own forest dwelling while joining women on foraging expeditions aimed at procuring sustenance from nature itself.
