Congo and CAR Safaris - An Overview


Congo and CAR Overview

A quarter of the world's rainforests

The Republic of the Congo (also known as Congo-Brazzaville) not to be confused with the DRC is Africa's equivalent of the great Amazon and includes the spectacular Congo Basin.  This Congo is the best central African option for a safari.

Zambezi has pioneered a number of expeditions into the wildernesses of Central Africa. The Congo Basin Tri-National Park is one of those spots, much of it has yet to see Western explorers! Primarily walking and boating across jungle rivers and through the rainforests this destination is definitely for the more adventurous or experienced traveller seeking untold safari experiences.
