Formerly known as Zaire, this peaceful country is home to more than 60 million Congolese. French is widely spoken, mixed with local dialects in Lingala, Kikongo, Kiswahili or Tshiluba.
Scenic rainforest, magnificent natural parks, rippling rivers and enchanting volcanic landscapes dwell here. If you have a penchant for wildlife, the eastern part of Congo in the North Kivu Province is the best choice. Experienced mountaineers and volcano enthusiasts will truly love the Nyaringongo Volcano trekking. The view of an active volcano is simply spectacular.
