If you’re looking for a more adventurous holiday, but you’re not ready for some of the more dangerous areas in Africa, Congo has a perfect mix, with Brazzaville known for being the safest city in Africa, while tourism will take some ingenuity as some sites are quite difficult to visit. Congo has some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes with stunning beaches, savannah plains, majestic mountains, forests and, of course, the Congo River. The national parks and reserves are a must-see, especially the Lesio Louna Gorilla Reserve, the Douli coastal park with sea turtles, whales and glowing plants, and Odzala National Park. If you’re a keen fisherman, the Tiger Fish Congo Camp is for you, where the largest fish caught so far weighed 56kg. Brazzaville has a plethora of amazing buildings to visit, including the Nabemba Tower, the Congressional Palace and St Anne’s Basilica, and for any kind of food you can possibly imagine, the Casino Supermarket is a must.
