Tourism in Congo – Gateway to Gorilla Trekking in Congo

It’s not typical for anyone to visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Travelers to this region of Africa will be treated to sights and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else on the continent.

Kinshasa, the capital, is not particularly tourist friendly. In downtown Kinshasa an ivory market exists where other than the obvious, Congolese art, ethnic masks, and other exquisite products may be obtained. The Lola Ya Bonobo bonobo preserve is located just outside of Kinshasa. To relax in Kinshasa, a trip to the Congo River, the city golf course, or the numerous restaurants in the city center is in order.
