Renowned worldwide as the birthplace of legendary Congolese music soukous, DRC is full of youthful energy and rich traditions. Lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls, and grassy savannahs are just a few of the abundant geographical marvels this sizeable country has on offer. Cruise down the famed Congo River, peer into the molten red glow of Nyiragongo volcano’s lava lake, and marvel at the peaceful cooperation of endangered bonobos at Lola ya Sanctuary. Peruse the numerous local markets and admire the craftmanship of kuba textiles that inspired the French impressionist, Henri Matisse. Primus beer, proudly local, paired with the national dish Moambe chicken, are must-tries. DRC’s central location and numerous borders also make it ideal for visitors wishing to incorporate multiple countries in their itinerary.
