About Democratic Republic of the Congo

A state in Central Africa, the second largest on the continent. One of the poorest countries in the world — even taking into account the world’s richest deposits of diamonds, cobalt, germanium and tantalum, significant reserves of oil, gold, silver and bauxite.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is not very popular with foreign tourists: the country has a high crime rate. However, the number of travelers is gradually growing: they come to see gorillas, bonobos and okapis in the wild, to get acquainted with the traditional way of life of the pygmies.
