Located in the heart of Africa, DRC, birthplace of the legendary Congolese music, 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 the lava lake of Nyiragongo Volcano, and marvel at the peaceful cooperation of endangered bonobos at Lola ya sanctuary.
Peruse the numerous local markets and admire the craftsmanship of kuba textiles that inspired the French impressionist, Henri Matisse. Relax to the rhythm of soukous in the lingering evening warmth. Primus beer, a proudly local brew, paired with Moambé chicken, a national dish, is a must-try.
DRC’s central location and numerous borders also make it ideal for visitors wishing to incorporate multiple destinations into their itinerary.
