Cheap Flights to Congo

The Republic of Congo, Congo-Brazzaville, or simply the Congo, is one of the countries found in Central Africa. It is bordered by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Angolan exclave of Cabinda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo on all sides, and is dominated by Bantu-speaking tribes who have built trading links leading into the Congo River basin. It was formerly a part of the French colony of Equatorial Africa before its independence in 1960. 

A land of steamy and stifling jungles safekeeping half the world's lowland gorillas, masses of forest elephants, and hyperactive, swinging troops of chimpanzees, the Republic of Congo is on the verge of becoming one of the finest eco-tourism destinations in Africa. But the surprising fact is that the country has always been one of the unknowns – a rather 'hidden' gem of Africa despite its impressive natural beauty. For those who wish to heed the call of the wild and are not afraid of adventure, get ready to have the time of your life and visit what is arguably called the highlight of the whole of Central Africa. 

What to see & do

Les Rapides – the powerful and wide rapids on the Congo River at the outskirts of the city provide travelers with their dose of adrenaline, as this is where they get wet, wild, and downright adventurous. Most people observe the rapids, but some (a few really) lucky ones get to experience and face the river by crossing through it. 

Parc Nationale Nouabale-Ndoki – in the mid-1990s, this Northern corner of Congo was called the world's 'Last Eden', and it still rings true until today. Although it is not a virgin forest anymore, the sheer number of animal species that can be seen here is staggering, and is simply amazing. Forest elephants, chimpanzees, and the lowland gorillas can be seen everywhere – some even reported to have seen hundreds of gorillas running free in the vicinity. The park is a part of the much larger Sangha Trinational Park, a shared protected reserve with the countries of Central African Republic (Dzangha-Ndoki Park) and Cameroon (Lobeke Park). Note that all visitors should be clear of TB.

Brazzaville – known as one of the most charming and pleasant (if not the most charming and pleasant) cities in Africa, the other half of Kinshasa on Stanley Pool has risen to more than a 'junior partner' of its predecessor, and has a more laid-back, safe, and peaceful economic center. Visit the city for the best of the republic. 

How to get around

Travelers may go around the Congo through hired/rental cars, taxicabs, or even by train. The train is a two-in-one travel and touring mode, so it is best to try it out.
