Is Congo the right Tour and travel destination for you?

A traditional African safari is not what we offer on our Dr. Congo Tours. They were only intended for intrepid travelers who seek out uncommon, remote, and purely off-the-beaten-path experiences.

  • Our Dr. Congo Tours are designed to get away from the typical tourist traps and discover areas outside of the typical African safari.

Traveling in the DR Congo necessitates a very high level of tolerance and adaptability. Hotels are not on the same level as those back home, and you will be walking, using little wooden boats, and spending a lot of time in the jungle.

  • Those looking for western lowland gorillas can also take a tour of the Congo.
  • Congo trips are really extreme; they bear little resemblance to the safaris you have taken in Africa. Congo is difficult to visit, and not everyone should. Before you travel, you must be aware that your time in Congo will be among your best experiences.
