Congo is ultimately a vast, sprawling wilderness in the core of Africa, alongside the Equator. Its forests have the second-highest density in the world after the Amazon.
Congo Brazzaville has the highest concentration of Gorilla in the world, and a myriad of other big mammals – including Chimps, Elephants, Monkeys, and Buffalo, and an incredible array of avian life.
The people of Congo are also very diverse, ranging from the Pygmies of the forest, to the people of the coastal region in the south.
There are a countless number of reasons why the intrepid nature-lover should visit Congo Brazzaville.
Congo-Brazzaville has many natural resources which can be experienced, beginning with the majestic Congo River, whose name alone has made generations of adventurers dream. Moreover, the country can be visited in many places by canoe because of the dense network of streams.
