Offically the Republic of Congo, this nation is often confused with the Democratic Republic (DR) of Congo, which is a neighbor to this country.

A former French colony, the culture you’ll find here has been influenced by the landscapes more than anything else. From flooded forests to rugged mountains, people here have learned to adapt to changing circumstances when needed.

There is more than 170km of beaches to explore along the Atlantic Coast of Congo. There are also national parks and unique landmarks to be found.

Try Odzala National Park if you want to experience African wildlife in a close-up way. Visitors over the years have encountered elephants, monkeys, and lowland gorillas during their time in the park. There are 5 camps located within the park and plenty of trails to explore, but expect plenty of hiking to maximize your time in the area.

Louana National Park is another great opportunity to encounter the gorillas which call Congo their home.

One of the unique opportunities you’ll find in this African nation is the Congo Tank Graveyard. It’s located just outside the city limits of Brazzaville and is the home to hundreds of rusting tanks. There are few sites like this in the world, a holdover from the battles that took place historically for this region, and to walk amongst the hulks is quite the experience.

You also have the opportunity to find adventures along the great Congo River, with guided tours often available that can include safaris if desired.

Visiting Africa can be a life-changing event. Make Congo your destination of choice and you’ll be able to create an amazing adventure.
