    Great news for Okapi fans, The first sighting in almost 50 years of a Okapi in the eastern congo, the last one seen there was back in Augest 1959, it was seen in the Virunga National park along with Bongo which have not been seen there in many years. Wow :) .

    Just wanted to add that Bongos have also not been seen here for 50 years, really glad they are back.
