Learn More about the Republic of Congo
Luxury travel in the Republic of Congo is an African adventure you don’t forget. Not to be confused with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Republic of Congo is a separate country much smaller than the DRC and much safer for travel. The Republic of Congo is a great option for travelers interested in seeing rare and endangered lowland gorillas in their natural environment, without the crowds. Gorilla treks will bring you up close with these beautiful creatures as well as other primates, birds, and mammals than inhabit the Congo’s lush rainforests.
When not out trekking through the jungle, you can get local and try some pal wine, or shop for masks, paintings, and other artwork. The main draw however, is always the wildlife. With only four million Congolese living in the Republic of Congo, vast areas of the country are covered in tropical rainforest that are virtually uninhabited. A vacation to Republic of Congo will tour you through remote areas teeming with life. Odzala National Park is the country’s most famous reserve, but others, such as the Lesio Louna Gorilla Reserve and Nouabale-Ndoki National Park are equally as important to the many important and endangered creatures that call the Congo home.
