Congo Holidays & Tours

Located in Central Africa, the Republic of Congo’s small population mainly live in a handful of cities in the south-west. This means that vast areas of the jungle-covered country have no human population and are exceptional havens for wildlife. The country has the largest area of primary rainforest in the whole of Africa. The Republic of Congo is bordered by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Angolan enclave of Cabinda and the similarly named Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Congo Holidays & Tours

As a tourist destination, the Republic of Congo is probably best suited for those who embrace truly adventurous travel. With a limited tourist infrastructure outside the cities, and in many places, very little infrastructure of any kind, travel here is not for the faint-hearted. Getting around involves the use of light aircraft, 4WD vehicles (travelling on what passes for a road) and jungle river journeys by pirogue.

On the flip-side, the local people you meet along the way are genuinely unaccustomed to foreign visitors and are often fascinated by the presence of people who are so different from themselves. This can lead to some memorable and truly authentic encounters as you learn about each other’s cultures. You will also gain excellent bragging rights back home for having visited such remote and little-visited areas; a rare commodity indeed these days.
