Paul B. du Chaillu was an explorer, traveler and writer, known for hunting gorillas.

Du Chaillu was probably born in France, and traveled with his father to Gabon while in his teens. In 1855 he organized his own expedition, returning to Gabon and collecting the first complete skeleton of a gorilla. He made a third expedition to Gabon and Central Africa, 1863-1865, and traveled in Scandinavia during the 1870s. Du Chaillu wrote six books on his African adventures and four on Scandinavia. In 1901 he began preparations for travels in Russia; he died in Saint Petersburg.
