About Republic of Congo

The Congo is all about green jungles where you can find large groups of forest elephants, cheeky troops of chimpanzees, and over half the world’s lowland gorillas. The Republic of Congo has three incredible, yet little-visited national parks where everything from bush camping to swanky luxury safaris and lodges is available. This piece of West Africa is raw and real. The capital city of Brazzaville has a laid-back vibe, some great restaurants and some nice beaches on its coastline if you need a break from the hustle and bustle.
