Democratic Rep. of Congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo may seem like deepest darkest Africa but for the intrepid traveller it promises miles of untamed wilderness and scores of wildlife. With five Unesco biospheres, this is nature at its very best. From your base in the country’s capital Kinshasa you can set out in search of rainforests and smoking volcanoes. Hop on a pirogue and allow yourself to be paddled down the Congo River, stopping in at the Kinkole fish market. Admire the 100 year old trees at Kisanto Botanical Gardens or spend the day at the Chutes de Lukia, with the bonobo, or pygmy, chimps. You’ll soon discover that the DRC is anything but ordinary.
