Congo Democratic Republic

DRC or D.R. Congo is the largest and most populous country in Central Africa. The DRC remains a destination for only the most seasoned, hardcore African traveller. It is not a country for the casual tourist: the average backpacker, holidaymaker, and especially those seeking luxury safaris or organized cultural experiences.

In 2020 there is still a severe risk of any public gathering turning violent because of the political situation. And if the situation were to deteriorate, leaving the country would probably be difficult. Keeping a stock of essential supplies is recommended.

The defining feature of the country is the second largest rainforest in the world. Hikers can climb up Mount Nyiragongo (map), looming above Goma, and spend the night on the rim above an active lava lake (one of just four worldwide!). In the jungles nearby, a small number of tourists each day are permitted to trek to families of gorillas—one of our species’ closest living relatives.
